GW Nursing’s second annual Simulation Conference will focus on practice and include a panel of experts who will discuss the state of nurse practitioner (NP) education, use of simulation in nurse residency programs and the development of an NP simulation curriculum.
This year’s conference falls two months after GW Nursing and the National Organization of Nurse Practitioner Faculty (NONPF) convened a summit on further establishing simulation protocol in nurse practitioner education.
Whereas last year’s conference focused on the policy around simulation, this year’s sessions revolve around implementation of programs themselves. Drs. Pamela Slaven-Lee and Carol Braungart will lead a session titled Integrating Simulation-Based Learning Into Your NP Curriculum during the pre-conference.
Both academic and clinical simulation will be addressed. Dr. Amanda Garrow and Ms. Heather Walsh will present a session titled Enhancing Patient Safety Using Simulation at Children's National on the conference’s second day.
The conference’s speakers will include:
- Pamela R. Jeffries, PhD, RN, FAAN, ANEF, professor and dean of the George Washington University School of Nursing
- Suzan Kardong-Edgren, PhD, RN, ANEF, CHSE, FSSH, FAAN, an internationally known thought leader on simulation
- Carol Durham, EdD, RN, ANEF, FAAN, a leader in the fields of health care quality and safety, nursing education, interprofessional education, and medical simulation
