NCSBN National Simulation Study Wins Two Awards

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwired - Aug 12, 2014) - The National Council of State Boards of Nursing's (NCSBN®) study, "The NCSBN National Simulation Study: A Longitudinal, Randomized, Controlled Study Replacing Clinical Hours with Simulation in Prelicensure Nursing Education," is the recipient of two awards honoring its contributions to the body of nursing knowledge.

NCSBN was the recipient of the first Excellence in Educational Research Award, a program of the Sigma Theta Tau International/Chamberlain College of Nursing Center for Excellence in Nursing Education, presented at STTI's International Nursing Research Congress in Hong Kong. It was unanimously selected by the judges because it was a broad-based study that has nationwide and potentially international impact on nursing education.

The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation & Learning (INACSL) presented Jennifer Hayden, MSN, RN, associate, NCSBN Research department, with the first INACSL President's Award in recognition of her role as the project director for the National Simulation Study and her leadership in bringing this sentinel work to fruition.

The full report of the study will be available as supplement to Journal of Nursing Regulation (JNR) later this month and can be accessed at http://jnr.metapress.com/home/main.mpx.

Founded March 15, 1978, as an independent not-for-profit organization, NCSBN was created to lessen the burdens of state governments and bring together boards of nursing (BONs) to act and counsel together on matters of common interest. NCSBN's membership is comprised of the BONs in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, and four U.S. territories -- American Samoa, Guam, Northern Mariana Islands and the Virgin Islands. There are also 16 associate members that are either nursing regulatory bodies or empowered regulatory authorities from other countries or territories.

NCSBN Member Boards protect the public by ensuring that safe and competent nursing care is provided by licensed nurses. These BONs regulate more than 3 million licensed nurses, the second largest group of licensed professionals in the U.S.

Mission: NCSBN provides education, service and research through collaborative leadership to promote evidence-based regulatory excellence for patient safety and public protection.

The statements and opinions expressed are those of NCSBN and not the individual member state or territorial boards of nursing.
