Pocket Nurse (PocketNurse.com) is the world's leading supplier of healthcare education products and a proud supporter of those operating medical simulation. For the 2nd year in a row, Pocket Nurse continued its Founding Sponsorship of the SimGHOSTS symposium by providing two $1500 non-transferable scholarships to individuals/institutions in need. These scholarships are designed to support participation in the development and advancement of those operating a medical simulation lab. Funds should be used for the payment of conference registration, travel and accommodation costs.

Selection and Awards

Scholarship applications were reviewed by SimGHOSTS staff based off the submitted documents. Awards were provided to applications that clearly demonstrated an immediate need to support their program's simulation team.

Scholarship winners were notified via email on May 8th, 2015 and were required to respond and accept this award by May 15th, 2015. Participants were then provided a special link for registering for the 2015 USA meeting at Cedars-Sinai.
