Integrating simulation in multiple levels of nursing programs remains a challenge for educators. Nurse educators from various degree granting programs were surveyed to identify placement of multiple nursing concepts. The results of the survey identified concepts that could be incorporated, that is, scaffolded, into various levels of nursing education via concept-based simulations. Categorizing concepts into multiple learner levels provides an efficient, systematic approach to incorporating concepts into simulation throughout any nursing curriculum. Learn more about this project by watching the video. Then be sure to read the article.
