Welcome to the Idaho Simulation Network (ISN)

Who we are

The network is a private sector initiative led by members from Academic organizations, hospitals, professional organizations and Emergency Medical Service (EMS) agencies who have joined together in a collaborative effort to bring simulation initiatives to healthcare students and clinical professionals in a coordinated, economical and efficient manner throughout Idaho.
