A newly opened simulation laboratory at California State University, Fresno, will help provide hands-on training to aspiring nurses and other healthcare workers.

The Knorr Simulation Laboratory, made possible through a $174,356 American Recovery and Reinvestment grant allocated by the Department of Health and Human Services Administration and a more than $250,000 bequest from the estate of longtime Fresno RN Alpheda Knorr, will be used by local nursing programs and healthcare organizations, according to a news release.

In other news, four RNs were honored May 6 at the 25th annual RN of the Year Awards banquet, hosted by the Central San Joaquin Valley Nursing Leadership Coalition and themed “Nurses Trusted to CARE.” Selected nurses were: Nancy Hollingsworth, RN, BSN, MSN, MBA, interim president and CEO of Saint Agnes Medical Center (administration); Conrad Rios, FNP-BC, PA, MS, part-time faculty member at California State University and a geriatric nursing PhD student at the University of Utah (advanced practice); Jolie Gordon-Browar, RN-BC, MSN, PMH, president of the California Chapter of the American Psychiatric Nurses Association and psychiatric liaison at Community Behavioral Health Center and Community Regional Medical Center (clinical practice); Geeti Farrahi, RN, BSN, MSN, CNS, an educator at Saint Agnes Medical Center with a special interest in pain assessment and management (education). •
