In our individual simulation rooms, students develop real-time decision-making skills in controlled scenarios with manikins and standardized patients. Here, our students practice interacting with distressed or restless patients, concerned family, and other healthcare team members all while helping identify and treat underlying medical concerns.
Our practice labs include several beds for patients or manikins. Here, our students work together and closely observe their classmates and instructors to learn essential nursing skills. This is where our students learn technical skills such as intubation, organ system checks, and cardiovascular resuscitation.
Simulation Control Room
In the control room, faculty and staff monitor the progress of the scenario. Advanced audio and visual technology allows staff to give voice to manikins, adjust vitals in real time, and help guide students toward desired learning outcomes.
Debriefing rooms are equipped with monitors that allow live streaming of simulations for non-participating students. After the simulation, the whole class gathers in the room for a faculty-guided conversation. The debrief covers what students noticed and how they responded, what worked and what didn’t, and what they might do about it in the future.
