Mission & Vision

Our Mission

The Center for Innovative Education and Simulation in Nursing (CIESN) at the University of Ottawa aims to provide the highest standard of bilingual, nursing education for current and future health care providers in the Champlain and District Health Region, provincially, nationally and internationally.  Various methodologies are used to provide a milieu of excellence in teaching and learning including: use of up-to-date equipment and facilities that reflect current practice at health care facilities in the region, computer guided simulation, laboratory practice using current technology and simulation. All education modules and simulations are designed to foster critical thinking, autonomous, self-directed and reflective practice.
