How COVID-19 has made simulation more relevant than ever

As the COVID-19 pandemic has spread across the country and forced many nursing schools to pivot to online learning, the use of simulation in nursing curriculum has skyrocketed. And no one is more passionate about and more of an expert on simulation than our guest for this episode, KT Waxman

KT is an Associate Professor and the Director of the Executive Leadership DNP Program at the University of San Francisco and the immediate past president of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. She’s been working in the field of simulation for 15 years and has seen her work take on more relevance than ever over the last several months. 

Dan and KT and I discuss the shift to VR and screen-based learning in both schools and hospitals, how she’s focused on helping nurses achieve the outcomes of their coursework while relying heavily on simulation and how simulation can be used in some lesser known scenarios, like leadership development.
