Dawne-Marie Dunbar

 

Dawne-Marie, a UNE Alumni, is the Director of the Interprofessional Simulation and Innovation Center (ISIC) and an Associate Clinical Professor of Nursing for the Westbrook College of Health Professions at the University of New England. Her research and scholarship focuses on  interprofessional (IPE) simulation curriculum and debriefing development and evaluation.  ISIC provides simulation programing to all WCHP programs including Nursing, Dental Hygiene, Athletic Training, Applied Exercise Science, PT, OT, PA, MSNA, Social Work, Pharmacy, and Osteopathic Medicine. ISIC provides insitu simulation education for rural community’s health care providers in partnership with exposing UNE students to diverse healthcare populations and practice opportunities.

Before accepting her current position in October of 2013, she was a member of the nursing faculty where her responsibilities included serving as the simulation coordinator integrating simulation into all clinical nursing courses, and teaching/coordinating Medical/Surgical and IPE courses.

In 2015, Dawne-Marie was selected through competitive application for the year-long Leadership Development Program for Simulation Educators, the National League for Nursing’s faculty leadership development initiative, designed for those interested in assuming a leadership role in the research or administration of simulation programs in nursing education. In 2010, Dawne-Marie was also named a Health Information Technology Scholar by the National League for Nursing for her work "Developing a Wed-Based Simulation Platform for Interprofessional Simulation Education".
