Nancy Duffy is a leader in the South Carolina Nurse Educator Coalition (SCNEC) comprising the state's three state-supported baccalaureate nursing programs: Medical University of South Carolina, Clemson and the University of South Carolina. The coalition is developing a nursing infrastructure with transferable modules and shared curricula, setting up an innovative model of nursing education. The SCNEC project's aims are to facilitate more effective use of nursing faculty; to maintain a stable student enrollment; to decrease the annual perstudent cost and to increase satisfaction in both students and faculty with technologically innovative teaching and learning. The SCNEC will evaluate the effectiveness of simulation as a teaching strategy.
