ORLANDO – A variety of simulation training courses at the VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center (NSC) are now available. These courses include:

Introduction to Clinical Simulation Instructor

This face-to-face training is to address the gap in qualified clinicians who can facilitate health care training using simulation. This course combines didactic, small group and hands-on simulation activities so participants can develop the skills necessary to design, develop, implement and debrief simulation-based health care training in their work centers. After the training is completed, faculty members will participate in scheduled monthly SimLEARN Community of Practice conference calls in order to assist them with implementation of simulation into the health care training programs at their facilities.

The available dates for this two-day course are May 15, June 12, July 10, Aug. 7 and Sept. 11.

Simulations for Clinical Excellence in Nursing Services (SCENS)

SCENS provides common scenarios in a fully immersive nursing simulation in realistic health care settings to enhance nursing knowledge. Learners will experience synergistic collective learning in a facilitated and safe environment to identify errors and mark successes. At the completion of training, the students will return with 23 scenarios for use at their home facility.

The available dates for this four-day course are May 21, June 18, July 23, and Aug. 13 and 27. 

Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)
