Certification for the nurse educator working in simulation represents a national mark of excellence in the field of teaching and learning related to simulation theory, design, practice, and scholarship. It communicates to academic institutions, faculty, students, and the community that the educator has achieved and maintains a high academic standard in this area of nursing practice.
