Upcoming Webinar

Enhancing Competency-Based Education and Assessment with Video Simulations
December 13, 2022 at 2:00 pm (ET)

This webinar features the University of North Carolina at Greensboro's (UNCG) year-long project funded by AACN’s Foundation for Academic Nursing Faculty Scholar Grant Program. Building upon previous work developed with funding from a Health Resource Service Administration ANEW grant [23 clinical video simulations with faculty guides], five new clinical simulation videos with faculty guides were developed. The project's overall goal was to design competency-based video simulations that facilitate formative assessment of nurse practitioner students’ clinical decision-making [with the accompanying assignments]. The clinical video simulations come with a faculty guide listing the specific Essentials domain and concepts for Advanced-Level Nursing Education sub-competencies. Five nurse practitioner faculty experts from across the country validated these videos and resources. The work of the collaborative team effort of nurse practitioner faculty at UNCG who wrote the cases and the evidence-based information contained in the faculty guides was vital to the success of the project. This project intends to provide a free deliverable to nursing faculty to consider adding to the nurse practitioner curriculum to enhance the delivery of competency-based education for nurse practitioner students.
Presenter: Laurie Kennedy-Malone, PhD, GNP-BC, FAANP, FGSA, FAAN, Professor of Nursing, University of North Carolina at Greensboro
