Simulation Education Specialist

Kaileen is an experienced pediatric nurse that spent the beginning of her career in the Intensive Care Nursery at the Hospital of the University of Pennsylvania serving as clinical nurse, clinical practice leader, and infant delivery and resuscitation coordinator. She quickly found her passion for teaching through orienting new nurses. Kaileen supported the EPIC build, education, implementation, and optimization for the University of Pennsylvania Health System. After teaching several simulation and clinical courses at Penn, she now serves as a Simulation Education Specialist hoping to incorporate her bedside nurse and education experience to effectively bridge the gap between didactic and clinical.

Simulation is such an integral part of nursing education. We use advanced resources to provide students with expanded opportunities to confidently develop critical thinking and hands-on skills.
