Title:
Leading Change for Working RNs Through Simulation
Abstract:
Leading Change for Working RNs Through Simulation
Conference Sponsor:Sigma Theta Tau International
Conference Year:2009

P.I. Institution Name:San Jose State University
Title:Director of Educaiton
Co-Authors:Ingrid Thompson, PhD
[Leadership Session Presentation] Through partnerships funding can be accessed and leveraged. An example of this is a collaboration between a leading healthcare leader and a community college. This 12- month project created a replicable model for developing a full simulation program: full service 5 bed simulation suite with a diverse family of simulators, trained simulation educators, scenario library, and a training program for working Registered Nurses. Original funding was $800,000 and exceeded match by the industry partner. Mutual stakeholders from both organizations equally participated in the development and deployment of this project. Simulation training exposed working nurses and college nursing faculty to a new teaching methodology for improving quality in improving technical, cognitive and behavioral skills in the workplace. As a result, 351 working RNs completed 16 hours of simulation training. The impact of this training was significant:  reduced medication errors, hospital acquired pressure ulcers and enhanced teamwork and collaboration. The community college gained a simulation lab as a community resource for a variety of working health care professionals, RNs,  and students in allied health education programs.
