In the Center for Nursing and Health Professions building there are three state-of-the-art laboratories. The Nursing Labs serve as a learning resource available to all BS and Graduate nursing students. The labs are equipped with infant, pediatric, and patient simulators including High Fidelity Laerdal 3G SimMan. The labs provide a hands-on environment where students can learn, practice, and demonstrate nursing skills in a safe, supportive environment.
The BS nursing students participate in lab simulation with hands ‘on practice of nursing skills and procedures in a simulated hospital setting long before entering a hospital. Spending time in our nursing simulation lab is a key part of our program and prepares you to be an active participant in a live clinical setting.
In the Master’s Family Nurse Practitioner program the labs serve as the classrooms for the Advanced Health Assessment course.
Goals in the Simulation Lab
Lab simulations are integrated into the six semesters of nursing in the BS nursing program. Nursing students have the opportunity to learn and practice a wide range of clinical scenarios with skills and procedures similar to a clinical setting.
