WCU Faculty Sasha Rarang Presents Original Research on High-Fidelity Simulation at QSEN Conference

Posted on 07/22/2016

In today’s healthcare environment, patient safety serves as a crucial factor in determining the quality of patient care.

That's why "nursing education should focus the student’s learning on patient safety to ensure that individual errors can be addressed prior to starting actual practice," according to original research presented by West Coast University-Los Angeles assistant professor Dr. Sasha Rarang.

Rarang presented her findings, entitled "Measuring Beginning Nursing Students’ Knowledge, Skills And Attitudes Towards Patient Safety: A Study Of The Effects Of Scenario-Based High-Fidelity Simulation," at the QSEN Conference in May. This summer, Rarang also presented a poster in Spain for Sigma Theta Tau International, The Honor Society of Nursing.

"Thank you Dr. Rarang for always giving that extra time and attention to help our students succeed," Belinda Bickley, the WCU-LA Associate Academic Dean of Nursing, said.

Rarang, PhD, MSN, CCM, RN, has more than 20 years experience in nursing practice, administration and nursing education. She received her doctorate in nursing education from Capella University and a masters of science in nursing from Mount St. Mary’s College-Los Angeles.
