PUEBLO - A faculty member in the Nursing Department at Colorado State University-Pueblo has been selected for a national leadership development program for simulation educators.

Cathy Coram, visiting assistant professor of nursing, is one of 20 nurses selected to participate in the year-long 2015 Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators. The program targets experienced simulation nurse educators who wish to assume a leadership role in simulation.

During this year-long program, participants examine issues related to research in simulation, curricular integration, the role of simulation in inter professional education, and managing simulation activities within a school of nursing or a service setting. The program fosters individual growth, interpersonal interactions within the group, and networking with previous cohorts. The program, which begins with a face-to-face meeting at the National League of Nursing Leadership Conference in February, continues with conference calls, webinars, and forum discussions throughout the year.

Participants will:

  • Examine key issues in the design, development, use, and integration of simulation in nursing education.
  • Discuss the simulation initiatives of major national and international organizations.
  • Work on a group project that creates or expands simulation content for the web-based Simulation Innovation Resource Center (SIRC).
  • Create a three-year focused career development plan.
  • Implement an individual plan for leadership development.
  • With an executive coach, explore leadership assessment instrument.

Coram is the second participant from CSU-Pueblo as JoAnne Crownover participated in 2011. CSU-Pueblo has gained recognition for its simulation efforts in recent years when it became the lone in the United States for cutting edge simulation equipment produced by an Australian-based company, Mask ED, which uses "Hollywood style" masks to create characters used in nurse education.

Colorado State University - Pueblo is a regional, comprehensive university emphasizing professional, career-oriented, and applied programs. Displaying excellence in teaching, celebrating diversity, and engaging in service and outreach, CSU-Pueblo is distinguished by access, opportunity, and the overall quality of services provided to its students.
