MOSES LAKE – The Big Bend Community College Simulation Technology program has earned provisional accreditation status from the Society of Simulation in Healthcare.

Accreditation with the Society of Simulation of Healthcare (SSH), the largest health care simulation accrediting body in the world, is a peer-reviewed, customized evaluation of the simulation program, with factors including program structure, longterm plans and teaching outcomes.

“Obtaining provisional accreditation is a huge accomplishment for our program,” stated Big Bend Simulation Technology Coordinator Dana Borschowa. “This gets us on the map alongside the more than 100 quality SSH accredited programs around the world. This also validates what we have been doing here, the education we have been providing students, and it’s nice to see our hard work paying off.”
