The mandate to change the prevailing culture from opinion-based practice to evidence-based practice has influenced models designed as decision –making approaches to advance the integration of simulation education methods in higher education health professional programs, specifically among undergraduate and graduate education nursing programs. Simulation is one of the most rapidly growing strategies in clinical education and defining the best practices for dissemination is essential to the integration process. The intent of this workshop is to facilitate the opportunity to explore an approach to seek evidence-based outcomes in the process of simulation integration in clinical nursing professional education.

The call to action is clear for EBP and evaluation strategies. To that end, the ten (10) steps applied for framing a simulation informatics infrastructure in the academic environment are presented in this graphic as an approach to outcomes for process evaluation in setting the stage for simulation integration. The Approach to Outcomes The initial step in the approach call for needs/resource appraisals: It is within this frame that the realities of environment relevance and requirements must be considered. This may involve but not limited to (not exhaustive listings) gathering relevant data to describe outfitting required in the physical environment, supply inventory /requirements, technology capacities (system networking, audio-video, data to describe resources available for blending new/existing), staffing, scheduling , orientations, trainings. This is sometimes referred to as an academic environment transformation event which will vary in scope and scale based on the appraisal of resources available. The human capital aspect is essential to the simulation integration process for the purpose of aligning people with the strategy. The key objective is to close skill gaps in strategic Simulation Center positions that allow each faculty to be equipped with the
