objectives
Objectives
  • Identify specific ways to persuade administration to consider development of a simulation lab program.
  • Construct a preliminary plan for approaching administration.
  • Begin to develop a three year plan for your simulation lab including goals and funding/marketing ideas.
  • Identify resources available for simulation lab development.
persuading administration
Persuading Administration
  • Identify the hot topics for your administration
  • Know your staff and their strengths and weaknesses
  • Find some “seed” money
  • Have an overall goal for the simulation lab
will they spend the money
Will they spend the money?
  • Identify ways to make the lab sustainable
  • Identify benefits of simulation
  • Remind them it costs less in the long run
  • Remind them we have to be competitive and/or innovative to make it in the marketplace
  • Involve them in every step
presenting to administration
Presenting to Administration
  • Research what has been done at other schools and hospitals – locally and nationally
  • Develop a polished presentation
  • Consider your audience
  • Know the financial impact
planning
Planning
  • Assess your current situation
  • For each of the next 3 years, identify:
    • Goal
    • Plan
    • Funding Ideas
    • Marketing Ideas
current lab
Current Lab
  • 6 hospital beds (4-fully working, 2-non-functional)
  • 5 task-trainer mannequins (poor condition, parts missing)
  • 1 moderate fidelity simulation mannequin (excellent condition)
  • 1 large open room
  • 2 wall units simulating bedside equipment
  • Bed separating curtains (not installed)
  • Used primarily for skills training in first semester
  • Rarely used in other 3 semesters of program
summer 2008
Summer 2008

Goal: To update current lab and be prepared for use throughout all 4 semesters of nursing program by August 1st

Plan:

  • Establish lab director/coordinator
  • Complete inventory of current equipment/supplies
  • Visit several nursing simulation labs (OCCC, TCC, UCO, Temple, WELLS Center) to observe, consult and plan for our lab
  • Work with faculty and equipment reps to identify needed equipment/supplies
  • Redesign the physical layout of the lab to better resemble a hospital unit
summer 2008 cont
Summer 2008 (cont.)
  • Purchase equipment/supplies with grant funding
  • Obtain training on current and purchased equipment
  • Inservice faculty on current and purchased equipment
  • Work with faculty to integrate simulation into all nursing courses for school year 2008-2009
  • Develop policies and procedures for simulation lab
  • Work with faculty and simulation network to develop scenarios
year 1 2008 2009
Year 1 (2008 – 2009)

Goal – Increase retention and increase enrollment, integrate simulation throughout the curriculum

Plan:

  • Learn to use current simulation equipment to its maximum potential
  • Continue scenario development
  • Work with faculty to include simulation in every nursing course
  • Begin updating outdated equipment
  • Survey rural Western Oklahoma hospitals, nursing homes, ambulance services, and LPN programs about desire/funding for on-line LPN to RN program with centralized (or mobile) bi-weekly simulation labs
year 1 funding ideas
Year 1 Funding Ideas
  • Establish consortium with local hospitals (Park View, Kingfisher, Canadian Valley Integris) to obtain outdated supplies and equipment
  • Establish a collaborative relationship with EMT department at RCC to utilize budgets, equipment, and supplies more efficiently
  • Department of Education congressionally-directed grant
  • RCC budget
  • Student lab and supply fees (no longer having students purchase supplies through the bookstore)
  • Nursing Foundation
year 1 marketing ideas
Year 1 Marketing Ideas
  • Update current brochure to include simulation
  • Update website to include simulation
  • Create simulation video to show during recruiting sessions
  • Promote/provide tours for high school student groups interested in health careers
