CASN – Canadian Simulation Education Certification

The Simulation Certification Program fosters excellence in nursing education in Canada through faculty development in simulation-based pedagogy, practices, and technologies. The program prepares nurse educators to address a broad complement of practice learning needs and the full range of simulation typologies.


The Simulation Certification Program encompasses four modules, each offered once per calendar year. Although the given sequence is recommended, modules may be taken in any order and over the course of two years. Every module culminates in a submitted assignment and a multiple-choice exam. Upon successful completion of all four modules, participants will be prepared to write the national certification exam to achieve the Canadian Certified Simulation Nurse Educator (CCSNE) designation.

Audience: Nurse educators using simulation in nursing education programs

Delivery: Online (Adobe Connect & Moodle)

Timeframe: Modules are 7-8 weeks


Module 1: Theory and Design – next offering Feb. 5 – March 26, 2019  Click here to register

Module 2: Facilitation – next offering in 2019

Module 3: Interprofessional Education – next offering in 2019 

Module 4: Evaluation and Scholarship – next offering late 2019
