Standardized Participant Actors - (posted 8/17/21 by Standardized Patient Program at The School of Nursing)

We are currently recruiting Standardized Participants (SPs) for the School of Nursing at Madison College.

As we continue to battle the inequities that exist in health care in all areas of the nursing program, diversity is an essential criterion of the SP ensemble.

Currently we are seeking an ensemble that is:
• Multi-lingual
• Multi-cultural and diverse in ethnicity and religious philosophies
• Diverse in gender (binary and nonbinary)
• Diverse in sexuality
• Diverse in age
• Diverse in physicality (size and ability)

OVERVIEW
The Standardized Patient Program of Madison College provides nursing students further opportunities to develop their interpersonal and empathetic communication skills and their critical thinking skills in a controlled and interactive setting.

Standardized Participants are trained individuals who can reliably portray patients, caregivers, guardians, or hospital staff that the nursing students will work with throughout their careers. The SP must be able to be consistent in their delivery. The repeatable nature of this work is of the upmost importance as it will help with standardizing the assessment process and aid in post clinical simulation discussion.

SPs are contractors and will be paid a stipend of 15.00 per hour of simulation and training.

Please send a resume, cover-letter, and headshot to ashiley@madisoncollege.edu with the subject line: "SP-actor recruitment."
