Patricia Ravert of Brigham Young University’s School of Nursing was recently named a fellow by the National League of Nursing’s Academy of Nursing Education. She is one of only 86 fellows named by the academy.
Ravert was chosen for her innovative teaching and learning strategies, research, faculty development and leadership, according to the citation.
Fellows are chosen for their “sustained and significant contributions to the field of nursing education,” according to the academy. “Fellows provide visionary leadership in nursing education and in the Academy of Nursing Education. They also serve as role models and resources for new educators and for those who aspire to become nurse educators.”
Ravert studied and researched the use of pedagogy. Her innovative use of students to operate simulators and set up scenarios frees faculty to facilitate simulation sessions. She has taught this technique with an international team at the Simulation Innovation Resource Center.
She also acts as the associate dean for undergraduate education in the College of Nursing and co-director of the college’s Patient Simulation Laboratory.
