Nursing simulation conference scheduled for June 5-6 at HCC

May 10, 2012

Hagerstown Community College will hold its third annual Quest for Excellence Nursing Simulation Conference on Tuesday, June 5, and Wednesday, June 6, in the college’s Elliott Center.

This year’s conference will focus on the simulation needs of community colleges and new advancements in the nursing simulation field. Sessions will be geared toward both novices and advanced simulation users, and live pediatric and psychiatric scenarios will be demonstrated.

Tickets cost $300. The first 110 Maryland community college faculty/staff attendees to register will receive a $200 registration scholarship supported by the Nurse Support Program II Grant Program under the auspices of the state Health Services Cost Review Commission.

Professional continuing education credits are available to Maryland nurses and nurse practitioners through the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Attendees will receive 11 contact hours if they attend all of the conference sessions and submit a course evaluation upon program completion.

Sponsored by the Maryland Community Colleges Simulation Users Network, the conference is intended for community college faculty, lab coordinators, lab technicians and other staff working in nursing and allied health programs who are interested in incorporating simulation into their course curricula.
