Achievements:

  • Todd, M., Manz, J., Parsons, M., Hawkins, K., & 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. There have been near 150 individuals from 105 universities, colleges and health care entities that have requested access to the Creighton Simulation Evaluation Instrument (C-SEI) for the past three years (June of 2010 through May 2013).
  • 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)
