Over two thirds of magnet hospitals in the United States use simulation in staff education programs, and many educators have introduced simulation into their nursing and health care curricula. This highly practical volume meets a growing need for guidelines on planning, organizing, and implementing a health care education simulation center, using the collaborative and cost effective consortium model. The book takes the reader step-by-step through the process of building a coalition of key stakeholders, gathering and analyzing data, assigning leadership roles within the consortium, developing a strategic plan, and implementing and sustaining it. Case studies in each chapter provide real-life insight from a successful existing consortium by examining how it operates and highlighting successes, mistakes, and lessons learned. Key Features: Demonstrates the financial benefits of expense-sharing Co-written by a successful professional educator and a prominent business leader with consortia-building expertise Provides step-by-step plans for building and maintaining momentum and sustainability Includes useful tools for achieving and evaluating excellence Written for nursing and health care administrators, managers, educational leaders, and regional community leaders
