Each spring, UND Nurse Anesthesia Students present their DNP Scholarly Projects at the North Dakota Association of Nurse Anesthetists annual spring meeting in Fargo, ND.

At this year’s meeting, three UND students partnered with SIM-ND which provides on-site training to medical providers across North Dakota to disseminate their scholarly project.

Simulation In Motion – North Dakota (SIM-ND) provides on-site training to Critical Access Hospitals, EMS units, and other medical providers across North Dakota.

SIM-ND Truck

Altru Health System, Essentia Health, and Sanford-Fargo,  have partnered together under the leadership of the UND School of Medicine & Health Sciences Simulation Center to bring medical simulation education to all of North Dakota. This program, Simulation In Motion – North Dakota (SIM-ND), is a statewide, mobile education system using high fidelity human patient simulators to train pre-hospital and hospital personnel. Grant funding from the Leona M. & Harry B. Helmsley Charitable Trust allowed the Simulation Center and the North Dakota Department of Health to design and implement SIM-ND with four large trucks outfitted with adult, pediatric, infant, and birthing manikins. SIM-ND strives to bring the highest quality emergency medical education.
