I am in an ADN program with 100 students per semester. We have used clinical or skills lab time for simulation experiences. The faculty member who is the clinical instructor of the group, or the faculty assigned to work the skills lab that day, facilitates the simulation. I set-up and work the mechanics.
The two of us work together during the scenario so we can gain experience.

Because we are in the initial stages of incorporating simulation into the curriculum, we have started small this semester. Next semester we hope to expand. Faculty training via workshops are ongoing throughout the semester.
