Baylor LHSON

Name of Sim Center: Simulation Center for Research & Clinical Practice, also known as the LHSON Sim Center
Location: Dallas, TX
Sim Center Highlights: 

The LHSON Sim Center opened in 2008 and consists of three main spaces: the Health Assessment Lab, the Skills Lab and the High-Fidelity Sim Lab, encompassing approximately 2,800 sq. ft. The center will be expanding to nearly 5,000 sq. ft. during the summer of 2018, to meet the increasing demands for simulation from faculty and students, alike.

The mission of the LHSON Sim Center supports the mission of the school by assisting in the preparation of safe and effective professional nurses possessing the necessary skills and clinical judgment to provide quality, patient-centered care, through participation and engagement in a variety of simulation-based educational (SBE) activities.

The vision of the LHSON Sim Center is to be the synergy point for creative teaching among faculty and students where learning is facilitated through collaborative and cooperative processes.

The LHSON Sim Center strives to follow the standards set forth by INACSL (the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning) in their Standards of Best Practice: Simulation (2016). The center operates under a Sim Facilitator model; at every scenario-based simulation activity, a sim facilitator (a specially trained simulation educator) works alongside the course/clinical faculty member who serves as the clinical content expert.

In August of 2017, the LHSON Sim Team created and implemented the Two-Heads-are-Better-than-One strategy for role assignment in simulation. This innovative method facilitates the development of critical thinking, clinical decision-making, and communication skills among participants.

Students in the undergraduate and graduate programs at LHSON participated in nearly 2,000 hours of SBE activities during the 2016-2017 academic year. With the expansion of the center, the number of simulation hours being incorporated across the curriculum is expected to increase significantly.
