“Students in the Boise State University School of Nursing work are preparing to enter an interesting career as the COVID-19 pandemic rolls on. A major teaching tool to help students with hands-on experience is inside the Boise State simulation center, where students fine-tune their skills.

“Beds are set up like a regular hospital room. So, we’ve got working equipment, working air, we’ve got mannequins in there,” said Kelley Connor, director of the Simulation Center at Boise State.”
