Dr. Cassidy’s educational background includes a BSN degree from East Central University, an MSN degree from Oklahoma Baptist University, and a PhD degree in Nursing from Kramer School of Nursing at Oklahoma City University. She has also obtained a national Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN) and international Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) certifications.

She just finished a yearlong National League for Nursing (NLN) Leadership Development for Simulation Educators Program. Casey’s focus during the program was simulation faculty development; along with her fellow participants, she will be presenting her project at the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) conference in June 2020. Her project will soon be featured in a NLN Blog Post on the NLN Simulation Innovation Resource Center website.

Casey currently serves on statewide and national simulation committees that are working to promote simulation in healthcare education. In this spirit, she has advanced simulation at Kramer School of Nursing by creating a course for the master’s program in teaching future nurse educators best practices in simulation as well as a simulation immersion elective course for the traditional bachelors program.
