Course Overview: This 3-year project was designed to lay the groundwork for use of simulation for high stakes assessment in pre-licensure RN programs. This session will describe the process for simulation development, the evaluation plan, and strategy for field testing. Based on findings, recommendations will be made to the nursing education community regarding the use of simulation for high stakes assessment in nursing education and areas for future research related to this practice.
1. Examine the goals and intended outcomes of the NLN's project on exploring the use of simulation for high stakes testing.
2. Explain the goals, intended outcomes and findings of the NLN's project to nursing and simulation faculty at your institution.
3. Analyze the challenges encountered and accomplishments of this project.
