Notre Dame College Division of Nursing Presents Two-day Professional Development Seminar

College faculty, staff work collaboratively with community colleagues to develop problem-based case scenarios for simulation experiences

Notre Dame College’s Division of Nursing will present a two-day seminar, “Simulation: The A, B, C’s & Debrief” on March 13 and 14, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the College’s Regina Hall, Room 301.

Led by Jacqueline Robinson, Ph.D., MBA, MSN, ACNS-BC, RN, CCRN, CHSE, Associate Professor and Director of Notre Dame’s Shaughnessy Center for Nursing Innovation and Education, the two-day seminar will provide the opportunity for simulation colleagues, whether new or experienced, to network, share ideas and learn techniques and principles in the areas of simulation objectives, pre-briefing, simulation modalities and debriefing.

The seminar will benefit nurse educators, nurses, first responders such as paramedics and EMS personnel, and students in training for these programs. Topics to be covered include the importance of setting realistic, measurable and action-oriented goals of simulation; simulation techniques and design building blocks; simulation modalities and the pros and cons of various methods; role differentiation of the simulation activity – the facilitator, educator and student. In addition, the new OBN rules on simulation will be reviewed.

Students will be able to practice several different debriefing techniques and discuss the benefits of matching the debriefing method not only to objectives but also to the level of the student to enhance the simulation experience.

Discussion of various methods and techniques used by participants and ways to enhance simulation realism with a focus on cost effectiveness will lead to identifying or creating a structured template based upon current best practice.

The registration deadline is Friday, March 8, 2019, and seating is limited. The $150 fee includes lunch each day. The Ohio League of Nursing has approved the seminar for 13 CEU contact hours. For more information about the program, contact the Notre Dame Division of Nursing at 216.373.5183.

Additional details about the seminar and registration information, are available online.
