Since faculty are essential in the adoption and implementation of simulation in nursing education, it is important to know what they perceive as barriers to integrating simulation in curricula. These researchers, with the College of Nursing and Health Sciences of the University of Wisconsin, conducted a qualitative survey of nursing faculty to answer that question. Using the nursing education simulation framework developed by Jeffries and Rogers as their theoretical framework, they found seven major barriers: time, training, not applicable/attitude, lack of space and equipment/scheduling the lab, funding, staffing, and occupying all the students. The article concluded with an extensive discussion of possible solutions to the perceived barriers identified by faculty.
