Nurse! A training transformation

Director Margaret Calacci of the Grace Center for Innovation in Nursing Education, needed to build a robust, remote nursing education program on the fly to keep the education and future careers on track for more than 300 nursing students. It was like when she helped turn a 150-bed hospital into a 1,000-bed hospital overnight during the Gulf War.

Typically, nursing students do simulation learning in teams of eight to 10 people, something that wasn’t possible with the restrictions in place for COVID-19. The training went to Zoom-based sessions, and in one week alone, 345 students completed 2,200 hours of remote simulation and experiential learning.

Dean Judith Karshmer of the Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation also talks to us in a broader perspective on the importance, especially now, of nursing education.
