Simulationists Guide to Simulation Center Certifications, Accreditation and Endorsements

Guide to Certifications, Accreditation and Endorsements in Simulation

Share This Post

In The Simulationist’s Guide to Certifications, Accreditation and Endorsements, Simulation Nation talks about how confusing and messy the process can get in the simulation community. Our goal is to make it as simple as possible for you!

Amy Cowperthwait CEO, RN, MSN, CNS, CHSE-A and  Megan Weldon, CHSE, have gone through these processes, for not only their own simulation center and program, but individually as well.

Certifications, Accreditations, Endorsements

HEALTHCARE SIMULATION STANDARDS ENDORSEMENT

INACSL’s Healthcare Simulation Standards Endorsement is designed to recognize healthcare institutions and practices that have demonstrated excellence in applying all four of the following simulation standards from the Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best PracticeTM (HSSOBPTM) in their educational simulation programs:

  • Prebriefing: Preparation and Briefing
  • Facilitation
  • Professional Integrity
  • Debriefing

SSH Accreditation of Healthcare Simulation Programs

Set your program apart by becoming an SSH Accredited Program. SSH Accreditation is a peer-reviewed, customized evaluation of your healthcare simulation program.  This accreditation examines simulation program’s processes and outcomes in assessment, research, teaching/education, and systems integration.

SSH Certification

The vision of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare Certification Council is to foster excellence in healthcare simulation internationally through certification.

The mission of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare Certification Council is to promote competence, recognition, and development of healthcare simulationists through standards and processes for certification within the global healthcare simulation community.

The Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator® (CHSE®) Certification

The CHSE® certification is intended for individuals who perform healthcare simulation in the educator role without restriction to:

  • simulation modality
  • setting (locations where simulation takes place)
  • geographic location
  • learner population
  • function (e.g. teaching, assessment)
  • profession

The Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator-Advanced® (CHSE-A®) Certification

This certification distinguishes those who have proven themselves to be advanced educators in their practice in healthcare simulation and serve as mentors and examples to others in the field. Individuals who are interested in obtaining this certification and demonstrating their high level of expertise are encouraged to apply.

Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist

The Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist® (CHSOS®) certification has been developed as a service to the healthcare simulation community.  The CHSOS® certification is intended for individuals who perform healthcare simulation in the operations specialist role without restriction to:

  • simulation modality
  • setting (locations where simulation takes place)
  • geographic location
  • learner population
  • function (e.g. IT, A/V, moulage)
  • profession

Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist-Advanced

This certification distinguishes those who have proven themselves to be advanced operations specialists in their practice in healthcare simulation and serve as mentors and examples to others in the field. Individuals who are interested in obtaining this certification and demonstrating their high level of expertise are encouraged to apply.

Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) Accreditation

Simulation-based education (SBE) has matured into a formally recognised teaching method embedded in all healthcare training programmes. It is therefore important that standards of delivery of SBE are defined and described in a document that can be readily applied in different organisational contexts. Throughout 2015 and 2016, ASPiH consulted widely and developed the standards framework for simulation-based education in the UK. ASPiH is now in the early stages of providing an accreditation scheme that individuals, programme leads and organisations can apply to demonstrate that they are delivering high quality simulation-based education that will benefit patient care in clinical practice.
