I’ve not been here recently because so much has been happening!

The biggest update to share is that I have accepted a position as the education program manager at the Jones Learning, Innovation and Simulation Center at Virginia Mason Medical Center in Seattle, WA! It is a brand new role for the organization and for me.

As a result of this transition, I have some work to do to update this blogfolio and align it with my current work. I do feel keeping my academic experience and nurse educator work here is relevant, but I plan to acknowledge my new role and what it means for my teaching philosophy.

I’m making progress with my first 3 chapters, hoping to finish up chapter 2 this month and be in a position to take my prelim exam in Spring. I may share some sneak peeks of progress in the near future!

Looking forward to attending IMSH 2019 with my new team members, learning the ways of VMPS, and finding new ways to bring learning to life through simulation!
