Alignment of Content in Simulation Learning System to Clinical Judgment Competencies

Students using SimChart

The field of nursing is at an inflection point and recent changes in policy and practice have amplified the need for competency-based education and assessment. Students now need to go beyond foundational and procedural knowledge and must demonstrate competency in clinical judgment to succeed in today’s health care environment.

In this white paper, the research team at Elsevier examines the alignment between nursing competencies and curriculum within a simulation system with a goal to understand how and whether Layer 3 of the NCSBN’s Clinical Judgment Measurement Model (NCJMM) —namely, recognizing cues, analyzing cues, prioritizing hypotheses, generating solutions, taking actions, and evaluating outcomes—was reflected in Elsevier’s Simulation Learning System (SLS Hands-On and VR).
