The Think Tank on Simulation for High Stakes Evaluation in Nursing Education was a 3-year project that was undertaken by the National League of Nursing (NLN). It was sponsored by Laerdal Medical with a purpose of studying the use of simulation for high-stakes evaluation in nursing education. Previous research conducted and sponsored by the aforementioned organization had documented the value of simulation as a teaching method and provided guidelines how to effectively design and implement simulation scenarios. Nevertheless, they found little evidence that supported the use of simulation in the evaluation of nursing students' clinical competency in nursing schools. The project was designed to identify endof-program outcomes that were amenable to evaluation via simulation. Another goal would be to develop a series of simulation scenarios that could be utilized for summative end-of-program evaluation within prelicensure RN programs. Such pre-licensure programs would include associate degree, diploma, and baccalaureate nursing education institutions [1].
