Preparatory work for the participants included a review of the job descriptions and skills associated with health care team members of other disciplines prior to the day of the simulation (INACSL
Standards Committee, 2016).

The FDG conducted a literature review and linked Benner's narratives to the development of simulation practice, administration, and research with SSH competencies and INACSL
standards of practice.
The National League for Nursing and the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL
) believe that integrating debriefing across the curriculum--not just in simulation--has the potential to transform nursing education and holds great promise in educating nurses to be the reflective practitioners necessary in today's health care system.
background The SET, developed in 2005, was updated to be consistent with INACSL
Standards of Best Practice, QSEN practices, and American Association of Colleges of Nursing baccalaureate essentials.
These include the use of: International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL

In spring 2014, 605 individuals responded to a survey conducted in advance of a Town Hall meeting at the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL
) conference; it was found that 42 percent were using high-fidelity simulations and 28 percent were using objective structured clinical examinations (OSCEs) for high-stakes assessment.
