Jessica D. PhD, APRN, CNE, CHSE

Professional Title:
Assistant Professor, University of Nevada, Las Vegas
Director of Education, Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas

Years in Nursing:
22 years

What is the best part of your job?
The best part of being a nurse educator is using simulation to facilitate nursing student’s successful journey through the nursing program. The second-best part of my job is educating faculty to effectively use simulation as a learning strategy.

Most challenging?
Remembering my role is that of a facilitator or guide on the side and not a sage on the stage. During debrief, it can be difficult to use silence and Socratic questioning to facilitate nursing students' reflection on thinking in simulation.

Advice for nursing students?
Nursing students may stress out and experience anxiety. Sometimes it can get the best of the best students. When I see this I remind the nursing students: You are smart! You do have the ability to think! You got this! Sometimes students just need encouragement.

Those who want to become a nurse?
Be sure, then be committed to your goal.
