She has facilitated and debriefed simulation scenarios in all areas of undergraduate and graduate nursing. In addition, she initiated the Standardized Patient program at RMU and was instrumental in the RISE Center accreditation. Donna is currently a member of the INACSL Standards committee helping to revise and develop content for the INACSL Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM. In addition, Donna serves as a Nurse Planner for INACSL and as a reviewer for the Clinical Simulation in Nursing journal.
