Results: Six participants applied for the examination and all successfully passed the examination on the first attempt, being the first Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators in Kansas. Conclusions: Participants reported improvement in the quality of simulation sessions, creation of a network of simulation educators, and an improvement in test writing skills.
