Facilitating a simulated clinical experience for prelicensure nursing students requires skills. Frequently, the experience is planned, presented, and debriefed by an educator assigned as the facilitator. The International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) Best Practice Standards℠ provide the goals for all simulation experiences. This article identifies challenges frequently experienced by the novice facilitator in meeting the standards. A table with the acronym CLEAR has been developed to identify challenges and strategies to assist the novice facilitator to meet the INACSL Best Practice Standards: Simulation Standard V: Facilitator℠ recommendations. The strategies provide the facilitator innovative ways to promote successful simulation learning experiences.
