National Curricula and Training

SimLEARN Innovation Center for Education (SLICE)

We are proud to present SimLEARN Innovation Center for Education!  SimLEARN creates training curriculum, then trains VHA staff to become instructors of that program at their facilities.  These Local SimLEARN-trained instructors facilitate courses and coordinate with the National Simulation Center, ensuring continuity of curricula across the entire VHA workforce.  SLICE allows greater flexibility in providing localized training across the nation.  Through this training model, travel is eliminated for local employees and minimal for nearby sites reducing training cost and the amount of time providers are absent from Veteran care. 

For questions about any course, please contact us at:

Trauma Nursing Core Course (TNCC)
The purpose of Trauma Nurse Core Course is to teach Registered Nurses core level knowledge and psychomotor skills, which are defined as central or key elements of the multidimensional processes involved in the initial assessment and management of sick or injured patients. TNCC also provides a foundation for integrated communication and collaboration in identifying and treating the sick or injured. The intent of TNCC is to help the nurse develop a rapid and accurate approach when caring for the ill or injured patient. TNCC consists of lectures, hands-on psychomotor skill stations and interactive online learning. TNCC is based on the nursing process, which is emphasized through the components of the course.

Offered virtually and at multiple sites – for more information or to register for TNCC only, please e-mail:

Out of Operating Room Airway Management Train the Provider (OOORAM)       
This course provides an application-based foundation for providing instruction within traditional modalities, as well as simulation based training by combining lecture, discussion, practical exercises, and hands-on simulation activities.

Out of Operating Room Airway Management Train the Provider Instructor (OOORAM-I)
This course combines didactic and hands-on simulation activities so participants can develop the skills necessary to design, develop, implement, and debrief simulation based OOORAM training in their work centers.

To enroll into OOORAM/OOORAM-I, please contact your local OOORAM Class Coordinator or TMS local administrator.

Introduction to Clinical Simulation (ICS)
The purpose of this simulation training is to address the gap in qualified clinicians who can facilitate healthcare training using simulation. This course provides a theoretical foundation for simulation-based training by combining didactic, small group, and hands-on simulation activities. Participants can develop the skills necessary to design, develop, implement, and debrief simulation-based healthcare training scenarios in their work centers.

SimLEARN Faculty Instructor Course (SFIC)
The purpose of this face-to-face (FTF) simulation training is to address the gap in qualified clinicians who can facilitate healthcare training within a traditional classroom setting, as well as using simulations. SFIC enrollment can be done through TMS.

Musculoskeletal - Telehealth (MSKV)
This course provides clinicians with a framework necessary to perform telehealth shoulder and knee examination. Participants will review the common musculoskeletal complaints presented during patient care, practice using the verbal instructions delivered to Veterans before and during the virtual musculoskeletal physical examination and provide a diagnosis based upon virtual observations. MSKV enrollment can be done through TMS.
