The Faulkner State Nursing Department has done it again. With its well received simulation using iStan, the College’s human simulator, the College has spread awareness of the dangers of texting while driving not only locally, but now internationally.
In March, several nursing students and faculty members traveled to Tampa, Fla. to present their simulation to healthcare professionals at the 2012 HSPN/METI National Conference. There, they received a METI award for their YouTube video of the simulation, “Texting While Driving.”
Featured on the cover of the Spring 2012 issue of Healthcare Simulation News, the Nursing Department has, again, made an international appearance for its efforts utilizing iStan in such a monumental way. This magazine provides news to the “International Healthcare Simulation Community.” Read the two-page spread on METI’s website by clicking the link below. Congratulations to the Nursing Department for the outstanding international recognition!
