Here’s the Scoop–July 13, 2017

Dr. Geralyn Michelfelder and Nursing Skills Lab Manager Deborah Seaman attended the International Nursing Association for Simulation and Learning Conference in Washington, D.C. from June 21-24. This is an annual conference for nurse educators, researchers, nurse managers and staff development professionals, and enables colleagues to share and gain current knowledge in nursing skills and simulation lab management and simulation enhanced education. Nurses and other healthcare professionals network with colleagues and exhibitors; and discuss best practice research, safety-related outcomes, competencies and challenges.

The Atlantic Cape Nursing Program implements many simulation experiences throughout the curriculum and the conference helps to develop the best evidence–based practice to accomplish student learning outcomes.


In June 2017, Dr. Curtis Andrews, a member of the Social Sciences Department, participated in a seminar at the University of Pennsylvania. The seminar was “Global Shifts: Urbanization, Migration, and Demography.” During this seminar, he had the pleasure of working with Dr. Samantha Powers, Ambassador to the United Nations during the Obama administration. On June 23, 2017, Dr. Andrews was selected by the KROC Institute as one of 30 recent scholars in International and Domestic Violence and Conflict Analysis. This honor was awarded after attending the University of Notre Dame’s famous Kroc Institute in conjunction with the United States Institute of Peace and the Keogh School of Global Affairs.
