Special Interest Groups (SIGS)

Special Interest Groups (SIGs) are designed to provide opportunities for INACSL members to connect, collaborate and network with like-minded individuals around simulation-based special interest topics.

Current SIGs

Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioner (APRN) SIG

Chair: Dr. Chris Muckler
Vice-Chair: Nathan Costiuc

The purpose of this SIG  is to increase visibility of APRNs’ contribution to the field of simulation, improve the value quotient for APRN involvement, and foster meaningful contribution of APRN expertise into the field simulation.

National Survey of Sustainability Efforts in Healthcare Simulation and Clinical Learning SIG

Chair: Dr. Melissa Bathish
Vice-Chair: Dr. Deb Lee

The purpose of this SIG related to healthcare simulation sustainability is to raise awareness of the affects of plastic and other waste in our learning environments and share innovative ideas on how we can manage this waste while maintaining authentic learning experiences for our healthcare learners.

Virtual Simulation SIG

Chair: Dr. Tonya Breymier
Vice-Chair: Sandra Swoboda

The Virtual Simulation SIG works to establish a community of healthcare profession educators who have an interest in virtual simulations, screenbased simulations, serious games and virtual reality. The mission is to serve as a special interest group to advance virtual simulation development, integration and evaluation in healthcare profession education curricula.
