Seminole State College of Florida’s nursing program won first place at the International Nursing Simulation Learning Resource Centers Conference at Walt Disney World on June 19 for a collaborative poster.

On June 18, nursing faculty gave a some of the conference participants -- about 40 nurses from across the world -- a tour of the state-of-the-art nursing labs at the Altamonte Springs Campus. During the conference, Professor Abel presented a session on Seminole State's Joining Forces pilot, focusing on how the National League of Nursing Initiative that is using simulation scenarios will help healthcare workers better understand the treatment for veterans.
