Successful Simulation in Nursing

Nursing Education

Helping You Succeed with High-Quality Simulation

We believe that simulation training for nursing education professionals is pivotal in our common goal to improve patient outcomes. A study showed that 96% of all accredited nursing schools use some form of simulation, but many struggle with curriculum integration and limited utilization, faculty preparedness, program support and sustainability, as well as limited quality clinical experiences.

Let Laerdal Medical and the National League for Nursing be your partners for education and support. Our team of experts with a know-how for improving nursing education outcomes can help you develop your program to achieve successful high-quality simulation. Throughout your journey, we surround you with a support system to help you meet industry standards and best practices, improve simulation outcomes, and achieve excellence in simulation.

Building a Successful Simulation Program That's Sustainable

Sustainable Sim Program

What makes a simulation program successful and sustainable long-term? The industry has put forth a combination of research, publications, industry standards and best practices, that when implemented well, work towards simulation success. The first step is to assess your program needs and define a strategic direction.

Begin your journey to sustainable simulation with a Needs Assessment and Strategic Planning Workshop to assess the current state of your program, identify needs, and provide strategic direction to meet your goal. An assessment provides the opportunity to collect and analyze information and data, as well as explore and understand the needs and existing resources in your nursing program. Our understanding of the industry and inner workings of simulation learning methodology and solutions will ensure that the technology you have or need works in harmony with your nursing program’s simulation goals.

Assessment

Is Your Sim Program Delivering Results?

Take our Simulation Program Assessment Survey to see how well you are optimizing the assets you already have. These questions are based on recognized standards from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSIH), the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL), and the National League for Nursing (NLN).

Faculty Development in Simulation Teaching and Learning Strategies

The Simulation Education Workshops from the National League for Nursing and Laerdal Medical are blended learning workshops, focused on providing faculty development in simulation teaching and learning strategies when and where it’s needed most – at your location and your convenience. We bring a qualified staff of NLN Simulation Nurse Educators and industry specialists with an expertise for improving nursing education outcomes, and pair them with your team. The Simulation Education Workshops offer Continuing Education Units (CEs) using active learning strategies that immerse faculty in simulation pedagogy. Faculty will engage in learning opportunities that address simulation foundations, curriculum integration, debriefing, and evaluation in simulation.

Faculty

The workshops feature innovative simulation methodology, including:

  • On-line modules from the NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC)
  • Full-scale simulation scenarios and virtual simulations linked to learning objectives
  • Demonstration of a well-run and expertly debriefed simulation grounded in critical theory
  • On-site small group sessions conducted by NLN Simulation Nurse Educators
