Jana Taylor

MS, Georgetown University, Gerontology

Nursing Professor Jana Taylor is an intelligent and approachable advocate for education simulation in the nursing field. She initiated the simulation lab at Linfield College, has pioneered the practice in Oregon, and is a national leader in the field.

Clinical training for professional nursing may include live, virtual or simulated patient situations in diverse health care settings. In simulated clinical experiences, the goal is to provide students with near-real experiences without the risk of harming people. Students may not otherwise learn how to manage high-risk clinical situations.

In addition to teaching, Taylor serves as the director of Simulation Operations at Linfield College.
