Poor communication is a leading cause of sentinel events. The aims of this pilot study were to determine whether the ISBAR (Identification, Situation, Background, Assessment, and Recommendation) Interprofessional Communication Rubric (IICR) was a reliable tool among nurses and to examine the communication performance of new graduate nurses in a hospitalbased simulation center. The IICR demonstrated reliability among raters in this setting (r s =.91). The new graduate RNs’ communication performance scores were low, warranting continued professional development. The IICR may be used to guide continued education and development for nurse–physician communication.
