ORLANDO, Fla. – With the exception of two virtual Trauma Nursing Core Courses, in-person courses offered at the VHA SimLEARN National Simulation Center in Orlando, Florida have been cancelled through August due to ongoing efforts to help stop the spread of the COVID-19 virus. Courses scheduled for the rest of the fourth quarter of fiscal year 2020 will be reviewed month to month as to whether they will go on.
