This 8 hour hands on course is for HCMC employees, residents, staff and educators to learn the basics of simulation. In addition, this class is helpful to teach simulation basics for Clinical and non-clinical staff who are involved with curriculum design or serves as a content expert for clinician orientation and ongoing orientation. Class content includes types of simulation, adult learning theory, how to use and interact with high fidelity mannequins and scenario development. The class is split up into groups to demonstrate their knowledge by building their own scenario, running their simulation scenario, operating the high fidelity mannequins and lastly debriefing the learners. Pre-course work readings will be sent one week prior to class and are expected to be read and reviewed prior to coming to the class.

Nursing Ultrasound Guided IV Insertion Class
