Dr. Jane Tyerman, co-president of CAN-Sim, led the project to establish Essential Skills Training For Health Care Workers

Posted on Friday, February 19, 2021

The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) in partnership with the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim) have collaborated to develop and disseminate five virtual simulation modules in both official languages to build capacity among graduating and new registered nurses entering the health care workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic. Registered nurses (RNs) are frontline responders in the COVID-19 health crisis and critical to the effective delivery of health care services.  We believe directed nursing education and training that is easily accessed virtual is an essential service during this health crisis. This will enable new, front-line nurses to better provide care for patients with COVID-19 while ensuring personal safety.
