Medical City Dallas believes simulation based learning is going to have a major impact on the way they educate their nurses. “Simulation is a very important part of the onboarding process” says Kathy Walton, Director, Nursing & Staff Development. It is used in a powerful way to ensure that they are competent, safe, and prepared to go to the bedside.

Today, Medical City Dallas uses simulation in 5 areas: Nursing Internships, PICU, Emergency Department, Women’s Services, and Chest Pain Accreditation Program.
