Practical Nursing prof travels to Singapore for international simulation conference


Holldrid Odreman, Ph.D., attended the Asia-Pacific Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare, National University of Singapore.

Holldrid Odreman Ph.D., Nursing faculty and coordinator of NC’s Practical Nursing program, traveled to Singapore in November for the Asia-Pacific Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare.

Odreman gave a presentation at the international simulation conference where experts, educationalists, researchers, and scientists in the field of Healthcare Simulation, gathered. The Asia-Pacific Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare in Singapore provided an international connection between the Niagara College Practical Nursing program and other schools of nursing in the Asia-Pacific. Hosted by the Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine at the National University of Singapore, the Asia-Pacific Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare 2016 was held November 15-17.

“This conference provided an opportunity for me to represent our school of nursing, Niagara College, and our high standards for teaching and preparing nursing students for the workforce,” said Odreman.

The title of the presentation, Build Self-efficacy and Clinical Skills Competency in Student Nurses, attracted the attention of other nursing faculty, researchers and simulation technologists. The conference challenged those in attendance to find effective ways of improving clinical outcomes while building strong technological and research connections within the simulation community.

“I was inspired to witness a global commonality in improving safe clinical practice using simulation as a method for effective healthcare instruction; something we are successfully achieving in our practical nursing program, here at Niagara College,” said Odreman.
