Elizabeth Benson is a nurse educator who saw a big problem. Students were being asked to practice IV insertion on a static mannikin verses a dynamic patient. IV arms are expensive and high fidelity simulations even more so. Elizabeth wants to ensure that every nurse has the tools, information, and skills she needs to provide excellent patient care.
She knew it was for something new, so she created a wearable simulation solution that is affordable, long-lasting, and usable in any environment. She has donated wearable simulation products to Nurses International to use in low income countries, and she’s working hard to find new ways to educate nurses and healthcare workers regardless of their ability to access an expensive simulation center. We’re so glad to have her on our team as an innovator, content creator, and leader! Thank you, Elizabeth for all that you do! Check out our IV Access page to learn all about IVs.
Nurses International is a non-profit entirely focused on helping nurses obtain the education and the support they need to make a difference in developing nations worldwide.
