Simulations allow students to test what they've learned in class in real-world situations, while maintaining a safe environment. From gaining experience with documentation to enhancing clinical decision-making skills, hands-on experience with simulations can reinforce learning and compensate for sometimes limited clinical space.
Whether your program is just beginning to use simulation or looking to increase its current usage, faculty buy-in is key to optimal success. Dr. Tim Bristol discusses three key strategies to use to encourage faculty interest in simulations to help students develop clinical competency before graduation.

Research has found that structured debriefing can provide an opportunity for students to derive deep learning from simulated situations. Dr. Donna Walls discusses how post-clinical debriefing helps students learn to recognize cues, prioritize care, & evaluate outcomes to develop clinical judgement.

Schools are now incorporating simulation in many ways. But what do students get out of simulation that they cannot get in the clinical setting? Dr. Donna Walls explains how vital simulations have become in nursing education to students and faculty alike.
An effective simulation scenario should allow participants to apply and demonstrate their knowledge, technical skills, clinical skills and/or nontechnical (teamwork) skills. Dr. Donna Walls shares her own ideas and step-by-step scenario recommendations to create the best learning experience for students.
During this webinar, Tim will teach you engaging methods ofincorporating electronic health records into your classroom, lab, andclinical setting curriculum. You'll also learn how SimChart, Elsevier’selectronic charting solution, prepares your students for a successfulnursing career.

Entirely eliminating stress in simulation is not possible. However, there are things you can do to allow the learner to spend more time on learning nursing and less time concerned with technology. Expert nurse educator Tim Bristol offers tips for reducing stress during intense simulation labs.
Bringing simulation into the classroom and changing patient scenarios are important strategies to help your students begin to build good patient-centered care habits. Expert nurse educator Tim Bristol offers a plan for teaching patient-centered care to students, utilizing simulation learning systems and client-centered curve balls.
With anticipated changes coming to the NCLEX® and an increased emphasis on students’ clinical judgement, it is essential to integrate simulation throughout your curriculum. In this article, Dr. Tim Bristol provides strategies you can start implementing now to prepare your students.
This webinar will help you learn how to integrate simulation into your classroom and create a safe and collaborative environment when teaching millennial-aged students.

The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) project consists of six competencies. Dr. Tim Bristol takes a closer look at each of these competencies through the lens of simulations to enhance lab-based learning.
Shelia Searles has spent countless hours investigating how to use simulation to help her students thrive. In this complimentary download, she shares some of the ideas and strategies around simulation she’s learned throughout her academic career.

Debriefing is a means of “assisting the learner in analyzing, interpreting and assimilating events in an attempt to bridge the gap between merely experiencing a situation and actually making sense of what happened.” In short, debriefing involves a retrospective assessment and interactive discussion regarding the students’ performance after clinical events occur. The goal of these conversations is to explore actions and thought processes through active reflection to improve future performance.

Simulations continue to increase in popularity in nursing education. The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) conducted a simulation study that determined simulations could be used for up to 50% of traditional clinical hours across the curriculum. Dr. Susy Sportsman discusses this study and the national guidelines to ensure evidence-based simulation.
