Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC)

The NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center is a collaborative alliance between the NLN and Laerdal Medical. The purpose is to develop a community of nurse educators who can effectively use simulation to promote and evaluate student learning and who dialogue with one another to advance simulation in nursing education. NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center courses are an online e-learning solution for simulation faculty and staff development. SIRC courses are designed for faculty and staff development, and include topics covering everything from the basics of integrating and debriefing simulations, to conducting evaluation and research. Continuing Education credits are offered for each course.


As nursing education continues to evolve, we continue to meet the challenges learners face in developing critical thinking skills and translating them into action, within the context of patient care through simulation-based education.
