Simulation: What Is It and What Makes It Work?

A Collaboration Between The Organization of Associate Degree Nursing (OADN) and Unbound Medicine

Simulation is widely used in nursing education but the evidence demonstrates that simulation only effectively replaces face-to-face clinical experiences when they are framed by the Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice™ (HSSOBPTM). This webinar demonstrates effective strategies to effectively incorporate virtual simulation into your teaching. This presentation includes two fun video exemplars of virtual simulation.

Janeen Berndt, DNP, RN, CNE, CHSE

With over a decade of experience in higher education, Dr. Berndt offers expertise in online nursing education, competency-based learning, and patient simulation. Janeen has been a Certified Nurse Educator since 2006 and has incorporated all forms of simulation across pre- and post-licensure curricula. Among her significant accomplishments is leading undergraduate nursing programs during the COVID-19 pandemic allowing students to continue their education and graduate on time despite limitations in clinical and laboratory access. Dr. Berndt used the experiences from the pandemic to expand the continued use of virtual learning to augment competency-based learning in prelicensure nursing education. Additionally, her work in high-fidelity simulation has improved clinical experiences in nursing programs facing significant clinical site competition. Dr. Berndt holds the CNE, CHSE, and Adult Health Clinical Nurse Specialist certifications.
