Abstract

The Bay Area Simulation Collaborative (BASC), established in 2007, is a group of more than 100 schools of nursing and hospitals, totaling more than 600 faculty and hospital educators, from both service and academia in the ten counties that comprise the San Francisco Bay Area. The California Institute for Nursing & Health Care leads the BASC, which was funded through a grant from the Gordon and Betty Moore Foundation. This 3-year project was designed to train and educate nursing faculty and hospital educators in the concepts of simulation. It was also designed to develop clinical simulation scenarios for use within the BASC. Finally, the project implemented a research and evaluation agenda to demonstrate that simulation makes a positive difference in the critical thinking skills of nursing students. This article will describe the evolution, purpose, and goals of the BASC and how the initial investment has been leveraged to create addition regional collaboratives in the state and ultimately, the California Simulation Alliance.
