Abstract

Background: Ajzen's theory of planned behavior (TPB) guided this evaluation of a Summer Simulation Training Fellowship program for baccalaureate nursing faculty. The 2-day curriculum integrated simulation pedagogy with TPB-derived strategies. Methods: A 24-item survey measured pre-post test changes in TPB-derived subscales. The dependent t test was used (N = 11). Results: There were nonsignificant changes in the subscales. Intention to teach with SimMan in the next year did not increase, but general intention to use simulation improved (p = 005). There were significant changes in individual subscale items. Conclusions: The Summer Simulation Training Fellowship program needs further testing.
