We have been participating in a nation-wide study that is based around a 50% clinical load in simulation activities. The state of Texas BON allows up to 50% outside of traditional clinical hours to be spent in a variety of activities that can include simulation, multimedia etc. However, they have not stated that all of the 50% SHOULD be in simulation.

The study we are working on will help justify simulation as an alternative for at least part of the clinical hours required. We are now in the final analysis phase of the project, so you will be seeing some very rich data on this topic very soon.
