Online Simulation Graduate Certificate

UPDATE – April 16, 2020

Due to unavoidable changes caused by the Covid 19 pandemic, we are pausing our Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Simulation program. This means we will not begin a cohort of students in Fall 2020.  For the present we have stopped accepting applications for and admissions to the Graduate Certificate in Healthcare Simulation.

Become a Healthcare Simulation Educator

Boise State University offers an online Healthcare Simulation Certificate. This nine credit hour interprofessional program (3 courses, 3 credit hours each) offers a combination of two completely online courses and one hybrid course that includes a three day on-campus visit for an intensive training experience at the accredited Boise State College of Health Sciences Simulation Center. This program provides the participant with the skills to facilitate healthcare simulations and to operate and maintain a simulation center using evidence-based teaching methods. Courses are all taught by Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators (CHSE).

Program Objectives

  • Create a curriculum to develop healthcare educators who are able to use evidence-based principles and best practices in simulation teaching.
  • Create a program which will provide baseline knowledge in preparation for three interprofessional certifications offered by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare in simulation education, advanced simulation education, and simulation operations.

Learning Outcomes

  1. Graduates will be able to write, conduct, and debrief simulation scenarios for health professions students which promote optimal learning and skill development.
  2. Graduates will develop skills to manage simulation center activities such as planning, scheduling, budgeting, and equipment troubleshooting.
