2017 Dates Now Available!

600 Barnhill Drive, 3rd Floor

At the SIM Institute, you will learn to design, implement, debrief, and evaluate simulations in nursing education and hospital settings. You will review evidence-based findings with an emphasis on guidelines for nurse educators using simulation in the educational arena. During the institute, you will learn the basic elements of setting up a simulation based on the framework of Jeffries (2005) and principles of best practice in using simulation.

During the four days of the institute, you will be immersed in simulations, become familiar with different types and uses of simulation, learn basic Laerdal programming skills, practice moulage techniques for the manikin, and improve debriefing skills.

The goals of the training are to:

  • Identify key elements to include in a well-designed, learner-centered simulation
  • Develop, set-up, run, debrief, and evaluate a simulation scenario
  • Discuss strategies to successfully integrate simulations into the educational plan

Each participant will be required to complete pre-institute work and bring a laptop (no tablets or Apple products because of software required at institute) to the institute with programming software already downloaded. More information will be sent after registration is received. 

Registration is extremely limited so register early!
