Successful Simulation in Nursing

Tailored to Address the Needs of Your Nursing Program

Teaching nursing using simulation has been proven to be as effective as traditional clinical methods when faculty have the needed skills and resources. Successful Simulation in Nursing, developed by the National League for Nursing and Laerdal Medical, helps schools and programs successfully implement highly effective simulation training for nursing students.

Along with  NLN and Laerdal expertise, the program incorporates the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM , the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) Standards, and the guidelines produced by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) in its landmark simulation study.

Faculty Development in Simulation Teaching and Learning Strategies

The Simulation Education Workshops from the National League for Nursing and Laerdal Medical are blended learning workshops, focused on providing faculty development in simulation teaching and learning strategies when and where it’s needed most – at your location and your convenience. 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. The Simulation Education Workshops offer Continuing Education Units (CEs) using active learning strategies that immerse faculty in simulation pedagogy. Faculty will engage in learning opportunities that address simulation foundations, curriculum integration, debriefing, and evaluation in simulation.

The workshops feature innovative simulation methodology, including:

  • On-line modules from the NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC)
  • Full-scale simulation scenarios and virtual simulations linked to learning objectives
  • Demonstration of a well-run and expertly debriefed simulation grounded in critical theory
  • On-site small group sessions conducted by NLN Simulation Nurse Educators


Every Nursing Program Is Unique; Learn How to Optimize Yours

Pre-recorded webinar June 2017, by Susan Gross Forneris PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE-A

This one-hour webinar explored how nurse educators can maximize the use of simulation to accelerate nursing education. During this webinar we discussed how to think differently about simulation programs, reviewed skills needed to align industry best practice with your nursing programs, and identified the gaps.
