ATLANTA, GA – January 23, 2012 –NIIT, a global managed training services company, announces that its client,Rush University, has been selected as aLearning! 100 top learning organization.  NIIT’s Psychiatric Nursing Simulation Program for Rush University has been nominated by the editors of Elearning! Media Group for the Learning! 100 Awards. The work introduced innovations in nurse education through video simulation-based e-learning to train psychiatric nurses.
 
Each year, theElearning! Media Group’s (EMG) Learning! 100 Awards recognize the top 100 organizations for their best-in-class learning and development programs, enabling learning culture that creates outstanding organizational performance. Catherine Upton, group publisher of Elearning! Media Group: Elearning! & Government Elearning! Magazines, states, “As a Learning!100 award-winner, Rush University joins American Express, Defense Acquisition University and others as one of the top 100 leading learning organizations who drive performance through learning.”
 
“I'm really pleased that Learning 100 has chosen to recognize our project with Rush University with this nomination.  I think it's really appropriate, because the project is a great illustration of Learning 100's theme of driving performance through learning.  Our work allows Psychiatric Nurse Practitioners to practice examine and treat patients with realistic disorders in challenging situations remotely, on their own laptop, enabling them to get the kind of experience that once before they could only get by seeing actual patients,” saidDr. Gregg Collins, PhD, NIIT’s Vice President of Worldwide Instructional Design.
 
The Learning! 100 will be honored atEnterprise Learning! Summit DC in an awards reception and series of articles, Web seminars and an awards presentation ceremony hosted by Elearning! and Government Elearning! magazines and research partner, Aberdeen Group.
