For several years Pocket Nurse has partnered with The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (SimGHOSTS) to provide scholarships to the SimGHOSTS USA event. With the change in event format this year, Pocket Nurse have generously agreed to transfer the scholarship to the SimGHOSTS Global Experience event.

Pocket Nurse is the world's leading supplier of medical supplies for education and simulation and a proud supporter of those operating medical simulation labs. For the seventhth year in a row, Pocket Nurse is continuing its sponsorship of the SimGHOSTS symposium by providing two scholarships to individuals/institutions in need. These scholarships are designed to support participation in the development and advancement of those operating medical simulation labs.

 Applications were reviewed by representatives from SimGHOSTS and Pocket Nurse. Five finalists were shortlisted and the final decision came down to those who demonstrated a strong need for both professional development and financial support. We are happy to announce the two winners are Marie Relosa and Rob Czernik

Maria Relosa is a simulation technician at Los Angeles Trade Tech College in California and is currently preparing for CHSOS certification. Maria is an experienced healthcare simulation professional and plans to use this opportunity to be inspired by new developments and work-arounds so that she can improve simulation delivery at LATTC. She also plns to expand her professional network and share her knowledge with others.  

Rob Czernik began his simulation career as a SP many years ago and has only recently transitioned into a simulation technologist role at University of Minnesota. Rob uses his background in theatre and events to improve fidelity and staging for simulations, including fabricating trainers. He is looking forward to meeting fellow technologists and broadening his simulation knowledge and skills.

SimGHOSTS thanks all applicants to the 2020 Pocket Nurse Scholarship.
