“The [virtual simulation] experience provided an opportunity for self-reflection and understanding in a most authentic way. It allowed for the real challenge I need to grow both professionally and personally while providing space for meaningful dialogue with colleagues that enhanced my learning. The CARE experience is nothing short of amazing and I consider it one of the most powerful learning experienced in my educational career.”
