Expensive high-fidelity simulators sit unused in nursing programs worldwide. One cause of this is failure to ensure organizational readiness to integrate simulation into the curriculum.

Psychometric analysis finds the SCORS to be a valid, reliable tool for use by administrators to determine organizational readiness for simulation integration.
