Engaging simulation-based mastery learning approaches to promote competence in clinical nursing skills

Monday, October 18, 2021
Presented by: Susan Hébert, MS-Medical Simulation, RN, CHSE, Director of Simulation, The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Nursing

  • About This Webinar and Speaker

    Academic nursing programs are tasked to generate the future nursing workforce by ensuring upon graduation students are practice-ready to provide competent and safe care. In the educational process, nursing students deserve and learn best when instructional teaching methods integrate individualized and engaging learning approaches. However, delivering individualized education using traditional clinical teaching approaches is a daunting task, and ensuring nursing students master the cognitive knowledge, psychomotor skills, and affective behaviors necessary to perform the nursing role is not easily evaluated or confirmed.

    This presentation describes an innovative clinical education approach, Simulation-Based Mastery Learning (SBML), integrated into clinical education engaging individualized teaching approaches, including identification of learner needs and deliberate practice, and ensured competence, confirmed through mastery evaluations. Presented topics include the theoretical underpinnings of SBML, educational needs appropriate for integrating a SBML approach, and a brief review of the literature supporting SBML effectiveness.

    Susan is currently the Health Innovation in Technology and Simulation Lab Director and Clinical Faculty at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville College of Nursing. Her clinical background is in Neonatal Intensive Care where she fulfilled roles including unit educator and regional outreach education focusing on improving morbidity and mortality outcomes. She has a unique educator experience integrating simulation for both medical and nursing programs. At the Indiana University School of Medicine Department of Pediatrics, her responsibilities included incorporating needs-based simulation training in clinical and academic settings. In her current role as a simulation director, she oversees simulation administration, including management of simulation personnel, integration into curricula, facilitation logistics, and necessary elements for program accreditation.

  • About This Webinar

    The recent pandemic thrust nursing educators into an entirely different realm of teaching. It does not appear it is going to disappear anytime soon as hybrid modules of teaching and learning remain evident across the nation. This presentation hopes to define, explain, and discuss applications of various types of teaching strategies such as remote simulation, tele-simulation, augmented reality, virtual reality, and mixed reality methods. Examples in both the undergraduate and graduate nursing setting will be discussed.

    This webinar is part of the Lippincott® Nursing Education Speaker Series co-sponsored by the National League for Nursing and are led by experienced leaders in nursing education. Topics focus on the issues that matter most to you and help address the changes needed to engage today’s students, and for clinical readiness, and NCLEX® success.

From bedside to brain: Science and art of good teaching

Presented by: Susan Forneris, PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE-A, FAAN, Director, NLN Center for Innovation in Education Excellence, National League for Nursing and Mary Fey, PhD, RN, CHSE-A, Senior Director for Teaching and Learning, Center for Medical Simulation

  • About This Webinar

    Teaching higher-level reasoning skills in nursing education is paramount for the success of our future professional nurses. As professional nurses we have content expertise in the practice of nursing. As nurse educators we often believe in the misconception that learners are empty vessels into which our expertise can be poured. Content, in and of itself, compelling as it may seem, cannot teach itself. Recent advances in neuroscience research are unveiling intriguing discoveries about how our brain functions—and more importantly, how brain-based learning is changing the face of education today. Join this webinar dialogue on moving from the bedside to brain – the science and art of good teaching.
