Sentinel U, a provider of web-based simulation education technology, last week named Dr. Martina Harris as one of the eight founding members of its Thought Leadership Advisory Council.

Harris, Ed.D. and RN, is director of the Registered Nursing Program at Chattanooga State Community College and assistant dean of Nursing and Allied Health programs. In addition, she has served as an officer of the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL).

Dr. Harris was appointed to the Tennessee Board of Nursing in 2020.

The eight experts from nursing, academia, and research and development named to the Thought Leadership Advisory Council will help guide Sentinel U in its continued development of effective virtual nursing simulation.

“We are honored to have this group of highly respected individuals commit their time and energy to helping Sentinel U meet the continually evolving needs of healthcare education and training,” said Dr. Laura Gonzalez, vice president of clinical learning resources at Sentinel U. “I look forward to the Advisory Council’s input and recommendations as we cement our status as the industry leader in healthcare education simulation.”

The Sentinel U Advisory Council is a two-year commitment. The Council will meet at least three times each year to provide valuable thought leadership on current trending topics such as the state of the nursing profession and the future of simulation integration.

Additionally, members will provide valuable feedback and recommendations on the company’s newest simulations and products.
