Over a hundred first-year nurse anesthesia students are heading to Texas Wesleyan from our distance sites across the U.S. to participate in the 3rd annual Simulation Symposium on July 14-17.
“Simulation training is a crucial part of the curriculum because it allows the student hands-on practice without real patient consequences. It has been shown to enhance student competency, improve student satisfaction with learning and may ultimately translate to improved patient outcomes,” said Assistant Nurse Anesthesia Program Director Michele Ardigo, DNP, CRNA.
During the four-day symposium, students will participate in intensive hands-on training to learn procedures like epidurals, central lines, codes, airway ultrasounds and regional blocks.
In addition to the new learning opportunities, more corporations are supporting the Simulation Symposium and will have a presence on campus during the four-day training.
