Topic of the Dinner:  The Future of Nursing Simulation


Join us for an evening of networking and education with your peers as we discuss the recent findings from the NCSBN National Simulation Study, and explore how ATI can help you leverage the results for your program and students. What did the National Simulation Study uncover, and what does it mean for your program? With so much innovation and change in nursing simulation, how do you ensure your students have access to the tools they need to develop their clinical reasoning and clinical skills?

We will have the opportunity to explore these questions together. Space is limited – please RSVP by April 5.
