Jane Gannon collaborates with faculty members and others to identify, develop, implement and evaluate simulation-based activities on campus.


Jane Gannon is the assistant dean of Simulation Based Learning in the College of Nursing. She collaborates with faculty members and others to identify, develop, implement and evaluate simulation-based activities in both the Gainesville and Jacksonville campuses. She also collaborates with faculty members from the Colleges of Pharmacy and Medicine on the Jacksonville campus to conduct education research focused on interprofessional care delivery. The team’s joint efforts have produced simulations on end-of-life care and medication management safety. Their collaboration extends to publications and presentations on their simulation efforts.

UF College of Nursing upgrades learning lab to high-fidelity simulation

The Independent Florida Alligator  online


With seven simulation rooms and a separate control room for instructing undergraduates, students can experience private patient care or larger procedures such as childbirth. An instructor in the control room can then feed vocal directions from the mannequin into a room for care and conditions, Jane Gannon, the assistant dean of simulation-based learning at the College of Nursing, said.

Recognizing opioid addiction and overdose: An interprofessional simulation for medical, nursing and pharmacy students

Journal of Interprofessional Education & Practice

Jane Gannon, et al.


Health science students need to be prepared to recognize and treat opioid overdose. A high-fidelity opioid overdose simulation was created to assess use of team-based communication strategies and competence in behaviors of interprofessional health science students (medical, nursing and pharmacy). Measureable outcomes were 1) frequency and quality of team-based behaviors through video analysis and 2) care delays and patient harm experienced by the simulated patient through a checklist tool.
