My name is Mary Terwilliger and I am enrolled in a doctoral program - specializing in Nursing Education. At this time I am working on the proposal portion of my dissertation; I am looking for contact information for various State Boards of Nursing as I would like to find someone who has the ability to send numerous associate degree nursing programs throughout their state a questionnaire as to the use of simulation and how it affects their NCLEX pass rates.

Any advice / comments / suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Thank you,

Mary Terwilliger, MSN, RN
Doctoral student - Capella University

The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NSCBN) is currently running a large three year study with nursing students from both BSN and ADN programs to study the "dose" of simulation and its impact on learning and success upon graduation. You may want to read more about the study at
