“God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change, courage to change the things I can, and the wisdom to know the difference.” — Reinhold Niebuhr

My current scholarly focus is on the development of an instrument to evaluate student performance in simulation. The Creighton Simulation Evaluation Instrument was the outcome of this research. It is continuing to be revised and tested in both the clinical area and the educational setting. It is also now being examined for competency testing for staff nurses.
