A transformational nursing simulation program that incorporates a holistic approach in caring for the caregiver is the focus for a Master's Field Project paper. As an alternative to the construction of a generic nursing simulation center that is limited to the education of knowledge and skills, a larger vision centered in Margaret Newman's nursing theory, Health as Expanding Consciousness is proposed. Business models, an incremental approach and practical suggestions are offered in support of healthcare organizations working toward a Center for Nursing Arts and Sciences in times of economic challenge.
