Although our primary audience is made up of nurse educators, we strive to bring to light important topics for educators in other fields as well, such as EMS instructors and allied health educators. In addition, we don’t want to use this space to brag about what we know and how we can solve your problems – we actively reach out to other experts and give them a forum to share their knowledge, too.
EMS Educator J. Todd Vreeland is an expert on the NREMT exam, and as such, was able to outline for us the changes that are being made to the exam and why. He provided a white paper for us, and has been instrumental in the creation of the First in Bag, a solution that is designed to meet the needs of initial EMS education and the more in-depth NREMT psychomotor exam, especially as it relates to the integrated scenarios.
Simulation is about realistic, immersive learning, and nowhere is that more clear than in the department of moulage. “Moulage” comes from the French for “molding,” and it is the art of applying mock injuries or signs of infection and disease to simulated participants or manikins to enhance learning for students in many healthcare fields. At this time, it is most common in EMS and military training. Moulage Concepts Inc. CEO and Founder Bobbi Merica has great tips about incorporating moulage into your scenarios.
We are fortunate to work with many vendors who value future healthcare professionals so much that they find ways to help educators educate.

Amy is the founder and CEO of Avkin, which brings wearable technology to the simulation market so students can stay engaged in learning.
