Simulation Education Specialist
Director, Helene Fuld Pavilion for Innovative Learning and Simulation

Ann Marie Hoyt Brennan has had a passion for teaching since the early days of her nursing career. She began precepting new hires while she was an ICU RN and mentored over a dozen nurses in just two years. From there, she was hooked, and as her career progressed, she realized that she had a knack for leadership and education.

While pursuing a Masters in Nursing Education at NYU, Brennan became an early adopter of simulation as an educational methodology, impressed by the way that simulation can offer a safe environment to practice doing and reflecting on one’s practice.
