Two related problems plague nursing education.  The shortage of nursing faculty limits the number of graduates available to work in the increasingly complex health care delivery system.  Those who do graduate have little opportunity during the educational process to provide care in high risk situations, requiring critical thinking.  As a result, they are often inadequately prepared to meet the challenges inherent in the nursing role in the acute care setting. Both the faculty shortage and the lack of clinical competency have been addressed by the development of a collaborative Regional Simulation Center using high fidelity patient simulation equipment.  The presentation describes the development and two year implementation of such a center, sponsored by a university, a community college and a regional medical center.  The center, equipped with six high fidelity patient simulators and staffed with BSN-prepared nurses who serve as extenders for the nursing faculty, provides competency education and evaluation for baccalaureate and associate degree students and hospital personnel. Clinical scenarios based on evidence-based practice are the educational framework used for determining participants? clinical competence.  Strategies to develop the clinical scenarios and competency evaluation instruments were discussed and lessons learned were highlighted.
