Teresa Gore PhD, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, CHSE-A, FSSH, FAAN from HealthySimulation.com discusses the development of simulation standards of best practice in nursing education. The standards cover various aspects of simulation, including terminology, participant objectives, facilitation methods, debriefing, and evaluation. The standards have been adopted and supported by numerous organizations worldwide. The conversation explores the impact of the standards of best practice in simulation on the simulation community.

Revolutionizing Nursing Education: The Journey of Simulation Standards of Best Practice

The journey toward establishing simulation standards of best practice in nursing education is a testament to the dedication and collaborative spirit of the healthcare simulation community. This transformative work began in 2009 and unfolded over three years, marking a significant milestone in the simulation field.

Crafting the Foundation

The development of these standards was not just about setting guidelines but also about creating a comprehensive framework that included terminology, participant objectives, facilitation methods, debriefing, and evaluation. These components ensured that the simulation experiences were not only educational but also consistent in quality and effectiveness across different learning environments.

The Impact of Standards

Upon their publication, the simulation standards made an indelible impact on the field. They served as a crucial guide for educators and researchers, establishing simulation as a reputable and research-based practice. With the support of numerous organizations worldwide, these standards have become a benchmark, leveling the playing field for simulationists everywhere.

The Role of Mentorship and Community

In the early days of simulation, the lack of established guidelines made mentorship and peer validation incredibly valuable. “When you are a simulationist in the early times, we didn’t have anybody to mentor us or even anyone to guide us within our own institutions,” one pioneer in the field recalled. The community’s generosity in sharing knowledge and collaborating played a crucial role in shaping the standards.

Continuous Evolution

The field of simulation is ever-evolving, necessitating continuous improvement and adaptation of the standards. Engaging with these standards and providing feedback is vital, ensuring they meet the community’s needs and stay relevant.

Personal Reflections from the Front Lines

The narratives shared by early adopters and developers of these standards reflect a mix of challenges and triumphs. “We kept hearing war stories. The war stories were getting us,” shared one contributor, highlighting the real-world problems that drove the development of the standards. Another noted the significance of validation by major studies, “We knew that it was going to happen when we got, when the NCSBN study and in 2014, you know, when Hayden et al, published that and said, follow the standards. That’s when we knew that that was one of those.”

Conclusion

The establishment of simulation standards of best practice in nursing education is more than a set of guidelines—it is a movement toward excellence and consistency in healthcare education. As these standards continue to evolve, they promise to guide new generations of educators and practitioners, ensuring that the legacy of quality and collaboration continues to thrive in the simulation community.
