Speaker: Brandi Crawford RN, MN, Associate Professor of Nursing , Simulation Coordinator for a 20 be simulation lab at Lone Star College in Texas. Crawford has NLN training on simulation as well as training from Laerdal.
The goal of this activity is to expose nurse educators to design and incorporation of simulation into nursing education. The interactive presentation will provide theoretical framework for simulation in nursing education and the unique ways in which simulation can enhance nursing students’ clinical reasoning. Simulation design and incorporation at each level throughout the nursing curriculum will be discussed and demonstrated. The facilitator will guide the participants in creating simulation scenarios for their specific content area. Participants will be exposed to the basics of conducting a simulation scenario and the mechanics of a high fidelity patient simulator, as well as points for debriefing and evaluation process following the simulation. Trends in simulation will also be introduced for future considerations. The target audience is nurse educators.
