The Centre for Innovative Education and Simulation in Nursing (CIESN) at the University of Ottawa aims to provide the highest standard of bilingual, nursing education for current and future healthcare providers in the Champlain and District Health Region, provincially, nationally and internationally. Various methodologies are used to provide a milieu of excellence in teaching and learning, including the use of up-to-date equipment and facilities that reflect current practice at healthcare facilities in the region, computer-guided simulation, and laboratory practice using current technology and simulation. All education modules and simulations are designed to foster critical thinking and autonomous, self-directed and reflective practice.
