The Simulation Certification Program fosters excellence
in nursing education in Canada through faculty development in
simulation-based pedagogy, practices, and technologies. The program
prepares nurse educators to address a broad complement of practice
learning needs and the full range of simulation typologies.
Audience: Nurse educators using simulation in nursing education programs
Delivery: Online (Adobe Connect & Moodle)
Timeframe: 8 weeks
Please note that participation in all live webinars is a course requirement.
The aim of this module is to foster excellence in the academic nurse educator role and to provide recognition and merit for the specialized knowledge, expertise, and competencies of this role in Canada.
The first module of the program focuses on competencies 1 and 2,
which primarily address the initial phases of a simulation-based
experience. Participants will learn to assess, develop, implement, and
evaluate simulation as a teaching and learning tool that facilitates
practice learning in nursing education. They will also learn to create
and integrate simulation theory/knowledge into courses and programs to
facilitate the acquisition of entry-to-practice nursing competencies
among nursing students.
Timeframe: 7 weeks
This five-week foundational
course will encompass clinical education at the baccalaureate level in acute
care, public health and community health-care settings.
