SimLEARN working to provide a variety of virtual courses for staff

ORLANDO, Fla. – 
The COVID-19 pandemic created a need to address the educational requirements of VHA staff in non-standard ways, at least in the interim. As a result of the pandemic, in-person courses offered at the VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center (NSC) in Orlando, Florida were repeatedly cancelled in an ongoing effort to help stop the spread of the virus. Instead, SimLEARN courses, like the highly effective Trauma Nursing Core Course, are being held in a live, virtual format.

Staff at the NSC are working on offering a greater variety of live, virtual courses. This situation is fluid. If you desire to take a specific course or know the status of their availability, please contact VHA SimLEARN NSC Support
