In today’s technology-rich environment, nurse educators need to stay up-to-date on innovations in simulation, e-learning, telehealth, and the integration of informatics into curricula. The center develops simulation scenarios for use across curricula and pioneers professional development for excellence in simulation and debriefing. The center’s faculty resources and NLN TEQ Blog prepare students for technological advancements in health care. Co-developed with Laerdal Medical, the center’s Accelerating to PracticeTM program aims to improve the preparedness of new nurses transitioning into practice; and supports expert nurse educators in their efforts to provide high quality orientation programs.
