The University of Louisville School of Nursing (Kentucky) has earned a $792,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Health Resources and Services Administration to develop nursing informatics education for UofL's undergraduate and graduate nursing students as well as practicing nurses from University of Louisville Hospital.

The funds will be used to purchase equipment for the on-campus nursing simulation lab, including a patient simulator, software, iPads, and electronic health record simulators, and to hire a technology specialist to assist with development of the program.

Lessons learned in the simulation lab will be reinforced through monthly brown bag luncheons at the School of Nursing and at University of Louisville Hospital, where nurses use an electronic health record system similar to the new simulators.
