Newest Healthcare Simulation Jobs and Job Posting Opportunities

Members of the healthcare simulation community hold a number of different medical simulation jobs across the industry. As the world’s premier healthcare simulation resource website, HealthySimulation.com shares information about new medical simulation job opportunities and allows educational institutions, medical facilities, and companies to post about their healthcare simulation job openings. Clinical simulation learners can also benefit from exploring these medical simulation job opportunities by gaining insight into the medical simulation career opportunities that exist across the world.

Healthcare simulation becomes has become an increasingly popular learning tool, especially given the need for remote learning during COVID-19. There is no longer the need for these clinical simulation professionals to work exclusively within hospitals or universities. Today, simulationists can find work as remote simulation instructors, able to work from wherever and whenever. For this reason, more medical simulation jobs and healthcare simulation job opportunities are opening.

The outlook for medical simulation positions remains strong even post-COVID-19 as many learners have chosen not to return to classroom instruction. Additionally, numerous universities and learning centers have kept the remote offerings put into place during the pandemic, both to meet learner demands and to establish more comprehensive medical simulation program offerings. The field has also proven to effectively enhance patient safety and offset medical error through constructive training experiences.

Current Medical Simulation Job Opportunity Examples

Director, Simulation and Clinical Learning Center: A school of nursing invites candidates to apply for the Director of Simulation and Clinical Learning Center position. The Director of Simulation and Clinical Learning Center will lead the integration of simulation throughout the academic programs of the School and will lead new initiatives to facilitate recognition as a national model in the use of simulation. The Director will also expand the collaborative efforts throughout the academic health sciences center. As a full-time faculty member, the Director of Simulation and Clinical Learning should have interests and experience in simulation that complement and expand existing expertise in the School. The Director reports directly to the Associate Dean of Academic Affairs.

Assistant/Associate Professor (Endowment for Simulation and Innovation): The endowed professorship at this college has faculty teaching and administrative responsibilities for simulation and innovation within the undergraduate and graduate curriculums. As the Endowed Professor of the nursing simulation program, the candidate provides leadership, management, and ongoing evaluation of all simulation learning experiences focusing on the current and emerging practice of simulation and implementing robust methods of evaluation. The endowed professorship will assure relevance and excellence in Simulation Student Learning Outcomes (SSLO) based on the guidelines and standards of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) and the Society of Simulation in Healthcare (SSH).

Mobile Medical Simulation Specialist: A volunteer-run non-profit is looking to hire a high-fidelity healthcare simulation educator for our mobile training program. Candidates should have training as a paramedic or nurse, some experience with educating learners, and a willingness to travel regionally. We will also consider experienced EMTs. Full and part-time positions are available with benefits and competitive salaries.

More About Medical Simulation Jobs

Healthcare Simulation Technician: A Healthcare Simulation Technician is a professional who works to implement, develop, participate in and operate healthcare simulation activities to guarantee a safe, high-quality, and consistent clinical simulation experience. They are also responsible for assisting in the management of a center’s infrastructure to ensure that student privacy, operational efficiency, limited downtime, and learning objectives are all met.

Healthcare Simulation Techs will also troubleshoot and resolve any technical and logistical issues, and operate a healthcare simulation capture system to ensure activities are videotaped. Other responsibilities of these professionals include: providing first and second-level repairs and preventative maintenance to simulation resources; ensuring that equipment and supplies are used and maintained properly; planning, developing, and manufacturing materials and techniques for executing moulage and task trainers; and maintaining current simulation related knowledge, communications, and customer service.

To become a Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist, professionals are minimally required to have an associate’s degree, but a Bachelor’s Degree is highly recommended. Those that possess three to five years of healthcare simulation experience will find themselves very desirable as the profession is so new! Certification as a Certified Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialist (CHSOS) in this field is also strongly preferred.

Healthcare Simulation Educator: A Healthcare Simulation Educator is part of a team whose goal is to develop and implement clinical simulation-based education and training designed to enhance patient safety and quality during healthcare delivery. These professionals are responsible for the coordination of a number of key healthcare simulation programs delivered by an educational center including the development of educational programs, teaching, coordination, and administrative tasks. Depending on the particular facility, the Simulation Educator may also assist with clinical session preparation and break-down, the operation of simulators, and by taking the role of faculty actor in immersive simulation training sessions.

Healthcare Simulation Educators may have earned at minimum a Bachelor’s of Nursing degree, but typically have Advanced healthcare degrees in Nursing (MSN), Medicine (MD), Education (Ph.D.), or similar. The underlying academic degree depends to some extent on the requirements of the institution where the simulation takes place. Some degrees can be in education, healthcare, or a related field.

Healthcare Simulation Administrator: A Healthcare Simulation Administrator is responsible for the administration, strategy, management, and leadership of a simulation educational or training program. These professionals manage and oversee all aspects of staffing, create and oversee policies and procedures, liaison between all collaborative stakeholders, support training, education, and research program development, as well as promote and represent the program.



To gain employment as a Healthcare Simulation Director, learners should obtain a master’s degree and ideally multiple years of related experience in either healthcare, technology, management, or education. Oftentimes, a master’s degree in a nursing-related field and a current registered nurse license are strongly preferred, however, other areas of study may be suitable.
