Schools of nursing are substituting simulation for clinical experience without requisite knowledge of simulation pedagogy. A 3-day train-the-trainer program prepared nurse educators across schools of nursing to use theory, standards, and guidelines when conducting simulation-based experiences. This curriculum model has proved effective in increasing the quality and quantity of simulation used in educating Maryland's nurses. To date, 154 nurse educators have participated in the train-the-trainer program.
