This month, the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) cited SSH's  (CHSE) as a recommended certification in their new NCSBN Simulation Guidelines for Prelicensure Nursing Programs.  

Published in the Journal of Nursing Regulation, the guidelines cite a study demonstrating that high-quality simulation experiences could be substituted for up to 50% of traditional clinical hours across the pre-licensure nursing curriculum. They also cite several additional studies supporting the use of simulation in nursing training, including one that found that simulation improved the critical thinking, performance of skills, knowledge of the subject matter, and increased clinical reasoning in certain areas.

A new award-winning study, “The NCSBN National Simulation Study: A Longitudinal, Randomized, Controlled Study Replacing Clinical Hours with Simulation in Prelicensure Nursing Education,” offers strong evidence supporting the use of high quality healthcare simulation as a substitute for up to 50% of traditional clinical time. The findings also reveal that a key factor in successful nursing education simulation programs is a dedicated team of educators—well-trained in the best practices of theory-based simulation and debriefing methods.
