NLN Webinar On-Demand
Download the webinar held June 2017. Included within is a framework for success to help you maximize the use of simulation.
Laerdal in collaboration with the National League for Nursing are your consultation partners for education and support. Together we can help you achieve successful high-quality simulation.
We believe that simulation training for nursing education professionals is pivotal in our common goal to improve patient outcomes. Our understanding of the industry and inner workings of simulation learning methodology and solutions will ensure that the technology works in harmony with your nursing program simulation goals. Get started on your journey to success today.
A recent study showed that 96% of all accredited nursing schools use simulation in some form.
These same schools struggle with:
Expert trained advisors will conduct a series of on-site meetings, interviews, and surveys with your team to evaluate your institution.
The Assessment provides an opportunity to collect and analyze information and data, as well as explore and understand the needs and existing resources in your nursing program. This analysis is used as the impetus to the implementation phase of the program with the intent of helping improve simulation utilization within your nursing program and in particular, improving student learning.
Assessment of your entire program and education practices, use of simulation methods, and operations using a combination of electronic and on-site facilitated assessments based on industry standards and best practices
A key success factor in building a successful and sustainable simulation program, is tailoring the scope of the implementation to address the teaching, program infrastructure, curriculum, debriefing methods, and clinical environment.
Successfully implementing the Simulation Education Solutions for Nursing (SESN) program is a custom process for each institution that occurs in multiple stages of planning, purposeful action, and evaluation. Your nursing program will need to be committed to the implementation process for long-term sustainable results.
During the implementation phase a Laerdal Success Manager will work with you to identify, plan, and execute recommendations for a successful simulation program. This customized implementation plan for success is developed based on assessment findings grounded in industry best practices.
NLN endorsed professional development workshops in the areas of:
Blended learning workshops from the National League for Nursing and Laerdal Medical. 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.
Pulse Check is the time to take the pulse of your simulation program, adhere to business success tools and make a lasting, effective change.
Organizational culture, leadership, and staff need to be nurtured and maintained. The involvement of dedicated Success Managers assigned to your nursing program in a continuous sustainment loop with your institution is critical. During this stage, a series of pulse checks deliver a quality assurance mechanism to evaluate program outcomes. This will facilitate assessing the effectiveness and quality of the program.
October 2015 The National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) published National Simulation Guidelines for Prelicensure Nursing Programs based on the knowledge gained from the 2014 NCSBN National Simulation Study in conjunction with industry research and the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM . “This article presents those guidelines, evidence to support the use of simulation, and information for faculty and program directors on preparation and planning for using simulation successfully in their nursing programs” (Journal of Nursing Regulation, October, 2015).
Take our Got Simulation? 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).
