The Simulation Center is an accredited state-of-the-art facility that gives learners the opportunity to participate in designed learning activities in a safe, controlled environment. In addition to the Simulation Center suite, learners have access to a 12-bed practice lab and a student center for study and group work.
It is not enough to know about health and illness, nor is it enough to know how to perform nursing actions. Knowing about and knowing how must be coupled with knowing when and which nursing actions should take place. Simulation pedagogy offers opportunities for both cognitive and psychomotor practice and provides a vehicle to demonstrate clinical nursing judgment and situated cognition.
