In 2010, the NLN began offering a year-long Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators, directed by Dr. Pam Jeffries. Sixty individuals have completed the program, and 20 others are participating this year. The Simulation Leader Directory contains the biographical data and areas of expertise of the Simulation Leaders who wish to share their information. Many are available for consultation and collaboration on simulation related activities. Take a look at the accomplishments of this very special group, and consider applying for the program yourself!
