What is there to say about Dr. Leighton? The better question is to ask what ISN’T there to say about Dr. Leighton.
Dr. Leighton is recognized globally a healthcare simulation educator, researcher and mentor. The primary area of focus in her research is the development and validation of a multitude of evaluation tools for healthcare simulation. Additionally, while serving as President of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, she initiated the development of what we now know today and the Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice. She is a prolific author and speaker with expertise in healthcare simulation and nursing education. Thank you, Dr. Leighton, for all you have done for the simulation community!
Jennifer Hayden MSN, RN
Hayden was a driving force behind the National Council of State Boards of Nursing: National Simulation Study. This study is viewed as one of the most significant nursing education studies ever conducted. Her findings as a Lead Researcher lead her to claim that 50% of clinical can be replaced with the use of simulation instead.
Thank you to Jennifer Hayden for leading the way for the simulation community!
