Jill Pence, assistant professor, and Cindy Berry, associate professor, from Samford University's Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing recently presented at the Human Patient Simulation Network's Annual Meeting Feb. 28-March 1 in Tampa, Fla.

Pence and Berry presented their original research, "A Day in the ER: A Multi-Patient Simulation for Senior Nursing Students". The setting was a rural emergency room with a number of different patients.

"The purpose of this presentation is to describe the development and implementation of a multi-patient simulation with senior critical care students in a baccalaureate nursing program," said Pence.

Pence joined Samford's faculty four years ago, and Berry is in her tenth year of teaching at Samford.
