Third WCU Faculty Member Designated Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator

Posted on 01/19/2016

Congratulations to West Coast University-Orange County instructor Eva Artates, who in December passed her Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) exam, a license held by only 600 healthcare leaders worldwide.

Artates is one of three West Coast University Simulation Center faculty to have earned CHSE certification and the first WCU faculty in California to do so.

“We are so proud of Professor Artates and very fortunate to have her as part of our OC Simulation Center team,” WCU-OC Simulation Center Manager Priscilla Greco, MSN, RN said. “We’re also excited to announce that she has been promoted to assistant professor as well.”

Earning the CHSE certification from the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) signifies that Artates has met the credible standards set forth by SSH and further distinguishes her as a simulation expert in health care simulation education.

“This highly specialized knowledge and skills validates her professional expertise in delivering quality healthcare simulation,” Greco added. “She consistently receives positive feedback from students who work with her in Simulation and serves as lead trainer for new hires.”

Artates started in the Simulation Center in 2011 and served in the role of manager for about two years before realizing that teaching full-time was her passion. She also serves as campus faculty advisor for our chapter of the California Nursing Students’ Association, is an active member and speaker for the Philippine Nurses Association of Southern California and has also participated as a guest faculty member for several International Education trips.
