Visiting Professor Workshop

The background, methods and results of the landmark National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) simulation study will be presented by Dr. Edgren, a consultant on the study. Using this information as a backdrop, the audience is invited to participate in a wide ranging discussion on how this information might inform the further development of simulation in Australia.

Suzan (Suzie) Kardong-Edgren PhD, RN, ANEF, CHSE, Professor and Director of the Regional Research and Innovation in Simulation Education (RISE) Center at Robert Morris University in Moon Township, Pennsylvania is an internationally known simulation researcher, educator, and the Editor-in-Chief of Clinical Simulation in Nursing, the flagship journal for the International Nursing Association of Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL).

Dr. Edgren was awarded the Excellence in Educational Research award by the National League for Nursing (NLN) in 2012 and the prestigious Debra Spunt Endowed Lectureship in simulation by the NLN in 2010. Dr. Edgren was the first nurse to chair the Research Committee for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) and serves as the Vice President for Research for the INACSL. Dr. Edgren also teaches in the MS in Medical Simulation program at the Drexel College of Medicine.
