The Global Nursing Education Virtual Simulation Consortium (GNEVSC) was formed in March to provide a rapid response to the COVID-19 pandemic covering topics ranging from the current limitation of clinical sites, instructional continuity, best practices for virtual reality deployment, debriefing remotely, online learning tools and more. The group has already produced several powerful webinar presentations [...]
Next-gen simulation can seriously help nursing students develop clinical judgement, specifically through the emergence of Virtual Clinical simulation. When high-fidelity, or manikin-based, simulation was first introduced as a complement to clinical instruction in the 1960s, nurse and medical educators finally found a scalable way to give students clinical interactions in a “safe environment” before seeing real [...]
The Wolters Kluwer website features a great video series for Nurse Educators, with a fantastic rundown of simulation based learning technologies provided on “Virtually Nursing: Emerging Technologies in Nursing Education” by Cynthia L. Foronda, PhD, RN, CNE, ANEF. Augmented reality and virtual simulation technologies in nursing education are burgeoning. Technologies present opportunities to improve teaching efforts, [...]
The Asia Pacific Simulation Alliance (APSA) requires partners and specialist experts who are chosen based on excellence and relevance in the cutting edge of evolving simulation technologies, theories and applications.
If you are a user or developer of simulation, please consider this opportunity. Recent projects have included guidance on joint training spaces, governance, management, metrics [...]
