This article describes how one school of nursing responded to the need to educate faculty in the pedagogy of simulation debriefing and how the International Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning Standard VI was implemented. Thirty faculty received training and were evaluated using the Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare tool. Lessons learned and examples of student feedback are shared. Plans for future work are also described.
