The Sentinel U® Nursing Simulation Research Grant (SUNSRG) allowed six organizations to conduct research on how simulation products can improve learning outcomes for nursing learners. The 2021 SUNSRG grant recipients spanned a diverse range of schools, including ADN, BSN, and HBCU (historically black colleges or universities), as well as a Hospital Setting for professional development.
With the support of our in-kind grants, the following schools utilized Sentinel U’s virtual simulations for nursing education to perform their own distinctive research over the last year:
The selected organizations conducted in-depth research studies, asking different use-case questions, assessing both qualitative and quantitative data, and utilizing multiple instruments to measure specific outcomes.
Sentinel U’s Vice President of Clinical Learning Resources, Laura Gonzalez, PhD, APRN, CNE, CHSE- A, ANEF, FAAN, personally mentored each participating organization in producing research that will contribute to medical science and education. Some of this research is currently under consideration for publication.
