There are no tools available to objectively evaluate simulation facilitators in their complete role. In light of the findings of the NCSBN simulation study (Hayden, et al., 2014), many nursing programs will increase the use of simulation as a teaching strategy. As more hours are used in this modality, it is vital that educators are competent in their role. The need for faculty development is underscored in the simulation guidelines for leadership and faculty (Alexander et al., 2015), as well as in the NLN’s Essential Vision for Teaching Nursing Care with Simulation (2015).
The Facilitator Competency Rubric (FCR) was designed to help validate facilitator competence as well as identify opportunities for facilitator development. Validity was established by expert panel of simulation educators. Reliability was very high with a coefficient alpha of .96 (95% CI: .96-.97). The tool is suitable for distinguishing between novice/advanced beginner, competent, and proficient/expert.
This presentation will provide the learners with examples of how to use and interpret the FCR. Following a brief overview of the major concepts and their components, the audience will practice using the tool to evaluate examples of facilitator behaviors to determine level of competency, which will then be used to identify possible faculty development opportunities.
