With the World Health Organization calling for ‘health for all’ to address the critical health disparities amongst populations around the world, the nursing profession, the largest cadre of health care providers globally, is responding with increased competencies to improve health outcomes. The expansion of simulation-based education can facilitate nursing education by enhancing critical thinking, communication, problem solving and improve clinical skills through deliberate practice for students as well as nurses at clinical settings. The Indian National Council (INC) is moving forward to establish a nursing curriculum that will integrate simulation learning. Using Columbia Nursing’s expertise in this methodology, and in collaboration with Columbia Global Centers | Mumbai and Bel-Air College of Nursing in Panchgani, India, we propose to assess nursing teaching techniques to identify gaps for nursing faculty and the nursing schools in Maharashtra State where the introduction of simulation learning could address in alignment with the INC national plan. Based on the assessment results, we will work with Bel-Air and INC to develop a simulation-learning implementation plan; conduct a simulation-learning summit with CGCs | Mumbai and Bel-Air to discuss these findings; and present a way forward for rolling out a new simulation-based education focus for nursing in Maharashtra as a model for other rural areas. The Summit will provide an environment for stakeholders such as the Ministries of Health and Education and potential donors to commit to a sustainable plan.
