Aim: To share our experiences of multicentre collaboration to develop simulation resources Simulation plays an important part in the education of nursing students. It provides a safe environment for the practice of clinical and interpersonal skills. Enhancing the range of simulation scenarios to capture the realities and diversities of practice can be challenging. To help address this, funding from The Erasmus Strategic Partnerships for Higher Education programme has allowed ten European Universities to work together to design simulation resources for adult nursing students and also provide training for simulation champions. With Malta University as the lead partner and coordinator, we are tasked with developing a simulation education resource for student nurses at novice level year 1, intermediate level year 2/3 and competent level year 3/4. We pooled intelligence gathered and set our focus on community based simulation resources. Developing the scenario for novice student nurses are Cardiff University (CU) Wales, University of Molise Campobasso (UDM), Italy and Turku University of Applied Sciences (TUAS), Finland. Although work is well underway on our community care scenario, we would like to share our experience of transnational working. Using a SWOT analysis framework (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) we will present how we have developed into an effective working team. The project involves transnational meetings in Malta, Finland, Norway and Italy and what we have come to appreciate is the enthusiasm for simulation education. We are really enjoying our cooperation with fellow nurse academics, one year in and two more to go.
