The NLN Center for Innovation in Simulation and Technology
“Academic administrators should require faculty …to perform with cutting-edge competence in practice, teaching, and research.”
– The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health (IOM, 2011)
The NLN has been in the forefront of promoting the use of technology in nursing programs for the last eight years through such one-of-a-kind initiatives as the online Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC). In today’s technology-rich environment, nurse educators need to be up-to-date on the latest innovations in, for example, simulation, e-learning, telehealth, and the integration of informatics into curricula. By advancing faculty development in emerging technologies, the Center for Innovation in Simulation and Technology will help provide safe and effective care for all patients.
