Dr. Marian Luctkar-Flude named Fellow of the Canadian Nurse Educator Institute

Queen’s School of Nursing is pleased to celebrate faculty member Dr. Marian Luctkar-Flude, who was named a Canadian Nurse Educator Institute (CNEI) Fellow by the Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) last week. One of only two recipients this year, the Fellowship program celebrates individuals who exemplify excellence in nursing education and nursing education scholarship.

With over 20 years’ experience as an educator, Dr. Luctkar-Flude is recognized by CNEI for her enduring and substantial contributions to nursing education: her leadership in teaching and learning, the active promotion of excellence in faculty development, and a substantial program of research. An internationally established expert in nursing education and clinical simulation research, Dr. Luctkar-Flude’s work strives to address gaps in health education, develop creative solutions, and inspire health professionals and educators through collaboration, mentorship, innovation, and scholarship.

Co-President of the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim), Dr. Luctkar-Flude’s achievements were previously recognized this year with the Council of Ontario University Programs in Nursing’s award for Strategic Contribution to Nursing Education and the Canadian Network for Innovation in Education (CNIE) Award for Excellence and Innovation in Instructional Design. Earlier this fall, she was also announced Queen’s Health Sciences 2021 Reznick Scholar, for her research project: “Co-Creation of Interprofessional Virtual Simulation Games (VSGs) for Health Professions Students on the Topic of Responding to Racial Microaggressions in Classroom and Clinical Settings”. The project involves developing an online education module for health professions students that addresses racial microaggressions in both classroom and clinical settings. Dr. Luctkar-Flude was also recently a part of a team of simulation experts who helped create the SOGI (Sexual Orientation Gender Identity) Nursing Toolkit, a virtual resource which provides training to nurses and health sciences learners on how to prioritize cultural safety and accessibility in a variety of situations with LGBTQIA2S+ patients.

Congratulations Dr. Luctkar-Flude!
