Cummings School of Nursing and Health Sciences Facilities
The nursing simulation labs: where theory meets practice and your career really begins.
The Latest Educational Technologies
The Endicott campus currently boasts three state-of-the-art laboratories. The nursing labs serve as a learning resource available to all undergraduate 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 opportunities where students can learn, practice, and demonstrate nursing skills in a safe, supportive environment.
Undergraduate nursing students participate in lab simulations 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 labs 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 baccalaureate 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.
Cummings School of Nursing and Health Sciences
At a ceremony to break ground on the new School of Nursing and Health Sciences building, Endicott College announced a historic $20 million partnership with Cummings Foundation. In recognition of this commitment—the largest in Endicott's history—President Dr. Steven DiSalvo revealed that the nursing school will be renamed the Cummings School of Nursing and Health Sciences.
The funding will support a new state-of-the-art educational space for instructing future nurses, and represents an investment in American healthcare, which has seen a nursing shortage exacerbated by the pandemic. The building will also house the Sport Science program providing students with interactive lab spaces and traditional classrooms.
