A recent study showed that 96 percent of all accredited nursing schools use simulation in some form.
Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 09, 2016
A new simulation pedagogy course has been released today by the NLN, joining 10 updated courses designed to help nurse educators expand their skills in teaching simulation and meeting National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) Simulation Guidelines. Online courses include interactive exercises and video clips of simulation scenarios, curriculum integration, debriefing, unfolding cases, and simulation-based interprofessional education.
The newest course, Simulation Pedagogy: What Every Nurse Educator Needs to Know, introduces simulation to all nurse educators who need to understand the unique contributions that the simulation-based educational strategy brings to the curriculum. The course presents the learning theories that underpin simulation, discusses the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning’s (INACSL) Simulation Standards the, NCSBN landmark study, and introduces the new NLN Jefferies Simulation Theory.
A recent study showed that 96 percent of all accredited nursing schools use simulation in some form. To stay current with best practices and trends in nursing and continue to help nurse educators integrate simulation into their curricula, new courses will continue to be released over the coming year.Institutional and individual access options are available through the SIRC.
