HI - 

Just wondering what the SIMS are like with Banner's New Grad program. I believe that they do an intensive 2 week course at the start of the program which includes SIMS. Are they just like in school?

They are like school, but less stressful. I mean, yes you’ll still stress about it but they really emphasize the fact that these SIMS are to help teach you and guide you as opposed to pass/fail you. So I found them to be more laid back. It’s also about teaching you their way of wanting things done. IV starts, Foley’s insertion, hanging blood, central line care, Alaris pump...those are the ones I remember. And then depending on your unit, you may have other specific days. Like OB, OR, or ICU.
