Given the high financial investment that nursing education programs make to incorporate high-fidelity simulation training, it is important to evaluate its usefulness in student learning and evaluation. Faculty developed an evaluation tool for simulated clinical scenarios, using both high- and low-fidelity modalities that delineated components and their relative weights, adapted to match the changing expectations for evolving novices. The authors discuss scoring, debriefing, and remediation.
