An article written by Sue Hudson, an instructor at Texas County Technical College, was published in the winter 18/19 edition of Missouri Nurse.

The work of an instructor at Texas County Technical College was recently included in a statewide nursing publication.

Sue Hudson, RN, MSN, of West Plains recently submitted “Ethics in Simulation: Death and Dying” to Missouri Nurse, the official publication of the Missouri Nurses Association. The article discussed the principles of beneficence and nonmaleficence surrounding end-of-life issues in the simulated environment.

Two perspectives were examined: Allowing death of the mannequin and never allowing death of the mannequin. Hudson also explored the psychological harm to students and the effect on learning outcomes this simulation had. Hudson’s article was chosen to be published in the winter 18/19 edition of the publication.

Hudson graduated from Missouri State University with her masters of science in nursing – nurse educator degree in December 2018. She is currently a member of Sigma Theta Tau International and the National League for Nurses Association. Hudson has practiced nursing for 20 years and transitioned into education three years ago. She currently is the program coordinator for the Accelerated LPN to RN cohort and instructor at TCTC.

Hudson’s current focus of research is experiential learning through simulation and kinesthetics.

“Nurse educators are called to train the next generation of nurses in a safe and efficient manner,” she said. “Providing a safe environment for our students to learn is a top priority for the instructors and staff of Texas County Technical College.”
