Achievements

  • Todd, M., Hawkins, K., Manz, J., Parsons, M., & Hercinger, M. (In progress). Website developed for training in the use of the Creighton Simulation Evaluation Instrument.
  • Todd, M., Hawkins, K., Manz, J., Parsons, M., & Hercinger, M. (In progress). National League for Nursing’s (NLN) Project to Explore Use of Simulation for High Stakes Assessment. This study utilized the Creighton Competency Evaluation Instrument as a part of this multi-site national study funded by Laerdal (company well-known for high-fidelity simulators and training).
  • Todd, M., Hawkins, K., Manz, J., Parsons, M., & Hercinger, M. (2008). Creighton University Simulation Evaluation Instrument (C-SEI). Developed the C-SEI, which is a nationally validated and nationally used instrument for evaluating student performance in simulated clinical experiences. Creighton University School of Nursing, Omaha, NE.

Professional Service

  • Todd, M., Manz, J., Hawkins, K., Parsons, M., & Hercinger, M. (2010- present). Collaborated with the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) to adapt the Creighton Simulation Evaluation instrument for used in a large multi-site study. Extensive reliability and validity testing completed by the NCSBN for the newly revised Creighton Competency Evaluation Instrument used to evaluate student performance in both clinical and simulated experiences.
