Simulation Proficient to Expert
by Tommie Rimes - Wednesday, January 6, 2010, 1:43 PM

I have a question for those of your who are veterans in the world of nursing simulation. I am wondering if any studies have been conducted to determine when a faculty member “generally” becomes proficient, expert, etc. in the world of simulation. I know that there are a myriad of variables to consider, but I would be interested in your knowledge of any formal studies that may have addressed this question (much like Patricia Benner’s work with nurses from novice to expert). Anecdotal accounts on this topic from simulation experts would also be welcomed and appreciated

Thank you and best regards,

A very interesting topic to research about proficient to expert. I am a novice in simulation. I just completed my doctoral study my research questions focused on whether instruction using high-fidelity simulation affected practical learning, critical thinking skills, and NCLEX performance potential. Scores from the Assessment Technologies Institute content mastery series test (maternal newborn module) were used to examine students’ knowledge related to pregnancy-induced hypertension, placental abruption, and postpartum hemorrhage. I want to grow with simulation and loved to have a mentor to move me in the right direction.
