What is Competency-Based Education (CBE)?
This session will provide participants with an overview of competency-based education, compare CBE to traditional teaching and learning, and discuss how CBE improves clinical judgment and prepares nurse graduates for clinical practice. In a hands-on portion of the presentation, participants will reflect on how they will modify their current approach to begin the transformation to competency-based teaching.

9:30-10:30 a.m.
Breakout Sessions

  • Backward Design 1 & Practice: Determining the Competencies & Performance Expectations
    Review the backward design process for competency-based program development.  Using the Essentials as the basis of the work, participants will begin to describe what expected performance of each competency and sub-competency looks like.
     
  • AACN Essentials and CBE Assessment
    Hear the latest updates from AACN on the national landscape of the Essentials implementation and transition to CBE including new and updated resources.

10:30-10:45 a.m.

  • Backward Design 2: Practice

11:45 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
Lunch

12:30-1:30 p.m.
Performance-Based Simulation: Incorporating AACN Essentials into Simulation Scenarios and Utilizing Simulation to Assess Competencies
Provides examples of how to assist the learner to take what they know and put it into action to move along the continuum of competency development. This session will feature a theory burst of why it is important to incorporate the AACN Essentials into the scenario to prepare a competent learner. Discussion around how to utilize simulation to assess competencies will occur. This session will introduce an evidence-based simulation scenario template for incorporating the Essentials into entry- and advanced-level programs. Using a storyboard, participants will begin developing a scenario that integrates the Essentials.

1:45-3:15 p.m.
Breakout Sessions

  • Backward Design 3 & Practice: Curating the Learning Journey
    Explore ways for structuring a student’s learning journey by competencies, rather than courses or textbooks.
     
  • AACN Essentials and CBE Assessment
    Hear the latest updates from AACN on the national landscape of the Essentials implementation and transition to CBE including new and updated resources.

3:15-3:30 p.m.
Break

3:30-4:15 p.m.
Role of Faculty as Instructional Coach/Mentor
As nurse educators begin to integrate competency-based education, it is no longer sufficient to be a "guide on the side."   This session will introduce the characteristics of a faculty membr as a coach. The interactive portion of this presentation will include a brief opportunity for participants to role-play, providing feedback to learners in the classroom and during direct observation experiences.

4:15-5:00 p.m.
Drafting an Institutional Work Plan for Operationalizing the Essentials
Follow a guided process to create an institutional-specific work plan with the key tasks and milestones, which must be achieved to implement the Essentials. An abbreviated discussion will focus on other areas on campus that may need to be involved in operationalizing a competency-based nursing program.

‚Äč5:00-5:30 p.m.
Speaker Panel Q&A
