Susan Gross Forneris, PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE-A is currently the Excelsior Deputy Director for the National League for Nursing Center for Innovation in Simulation and Technology, Washington, DC. Selected for inclusion in the 2010 inaugural group of NLN Simulation Leaders, she has been working in the field of clinical simulation since 2003. She served as a simulation expert for the NLN ACE.S Team (Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors) and a simulation author for the NLN ACE.Z Alzheimer’s simulation scenario series. In her work with the NLN she has traveled to Taiwan, China, and South Korea, working closely with those countries’ nursing education influencers to further develop faculty skills in the use of simulation best practices in teaching and learning. She has been instrumental in the design and implementation of NLN faculty development courses focused on simulation pedagogy foundations, debriefing, curriculum integration, and evaluation. Dr. Forneris’s expertise is in curriculum development with emphasis on simulation and debriefing in combination with her research on critical thinking. Her publications focus on the development and use of reflective teaching strategies to enhance critical thinking. She is a former Director and Professor of Nursing at St. Catherine University, St. Paul, MN.
