About
Laurie is a graduate of the francophone-nursing program at Laurentian University. In her doctoral dissertation, she has used phenomenology to examine the lived experience of new graduate nurses using maternal-child simulation in their practice. Laurie’s research interests are rooted in practice education and include the use of maternal-child simulation, the development of practical wisdom and imaginative thinking in nursing, and the transition of new graduates. A founding member of the Ontario Simulation Alliance (OSA), Laurie is currently fulfilling the role of co-president and is also a member of the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation. She has contributed to development of peer-reviewed maternal-child simulation scenarios and has presented her work in simulation at the provincial, national, and international level.
