INACSL Healthcare Simulation Endorsement

The Simulation, Technology, Innovation & Modeling (STIM) Center at UCF’s College of Nursing is among an elite group of nine simulation programs worldwide — and the only one in Florida — to earn the new Healthcare Simulation Standards Endorsement from the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL).

“The designation of a full endorsement recognizes the high quality of our simulation experiences, the expertise of our faculty and staff,  and our commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion across simulation,” says Simulation Center Associate Director Syretta Spears, who is among six certified simulation experts and five certified telehealth educators at the college.

This is the second global honor for the STIM Center, which earned accreditation from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare in 2020.
