features an article — “The Science of Experience,” written by John Cloud — that
highlights research being conducted at the FSU Human Performance Laboratory. Specifically, the article describes an experiment
that pits the care provided by a veteran nurse against that of a recent FSU College of Nursing graduate on a high-tech simulator
