Another great day out in the virtual worlds....... Today, Zelda visited the Jokaydia Grid. I don't have any pictures yet because she needs to spruce up a bit, and add some clothes and hair to make herself presentable. the most exciting thing that happened out there was Zelda got to meet the great Jokay!!! It was great chatting with her. She answered all my questions about Jodaydia grid, and I also got to meet her U.S. manager, Azzura Supplee! Tomorrow, Zelda will get a makeover and then I will post some pictures. I am also working on an application to the HITS scholar program from the National League for Nurses. More to come on that as well.

Where have the last two months gone? I guess writing my final Doctor of Nursing Practice paper has taken more time than I thought it would. I just submitted the final draft, and will defend on November 2nd. In the meantime, I have submitted, and had an abstract accepted for the Society for Simulation In Healthcare International Meeting for Simulation in January. Once I defend, and graduate in December, it will be time to get going on Nightingale Isle. Once I am all finished, I will talk about the results here.
I hope to get some simulations set-up, and give some presentations out there. Zelda attended an interesting meeting today for the Virtual World Education Round Table (VWER) weekly meeting. It was a very interesting hour with Jokay Wollongong from Jokaydia.com. You can join the VWER on facebook. Jokay discussed the recent price hike for educational islands in Second Life, and the importance for educators to have their foot in many of the virtual world environments.
