Presentation Abstract:

This CE webinar will show how a hospital-based clinical simulation program supported the transition to a virtual delivery methodology for a Nurse Residency Program during COVID-19.
Background: Amidst the 2020-2021 COVID-19 pandemic, the Memorial Hermann Nurse Residency Program (Transitions to Practice Program) shifted to an entirely virtual content delivery platform (Zoom™). In-person simulation-based training (SbT) in the System Clinical Education simulation center (MH SHINE: Simulation for Healthcare Innovation & Excellence) halted, and the need arose to continue facilitation of immersive SbT to augment didactic learning while in a virtual environment. Purpose: To evaluate the effectiveness of Virtual Simulation by-proxy (VSbp) as a viable SbT delivery methodology for hospital-based nurse residency programs. Methods: A QI project was conducted to implement a VSbp as an alternative to in-person simulation-based training (SbT) utilizing a high-fidelity simulator. Results: Results utilized to facilitate continued development and implementation of immersive SbT for the Memorial Hermann nurse residency program and other hospital-based simulation activities. Practice Implications: Implementing an immersive SbT methodology utilizing a virtual platform such as VSbp may foster continued development of the graduate nurse’s critical thinking while providing an engaging learning experience. Expanding the scope beyond the nurse residency program into the clinical hospital setting may support increased participation in SbT.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Discuss the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on hospital-based transitions to practice (nurse residency) programs.
  2. Describe the Virtual-Simulation by-proxy (VSbP) methodology for improving clinical training outcomes remotely.
  3. Discuss the potential applications of VSbP beyond a transitions to practice program for improved clinical care outcomes over time.
