Nursing Simulation Lab

Simulation has become a necessary and effective teaching and learning technology for nursing and healthcare provider education. Coupled with in-person clinical experiences in hospitals, clinics and community settings, simulation has revolutionized our educational possibilities. It allows students to practice their learning, and to think carefully about how they make decisions and deliver care, so that they can become confident practitioners. Simulation offers us the gold standard in education that we want for our nurses and healthcare providers.

Our excellent faculty members are so grateful we have had such support from our community to build this state-of-the-art facility where they can teach and foster the learning of our next generation of providers.

"Simulations help me gain confidence and knowledge in medical practices that I have had exposure to. The skills I've gained from simulations have already helped me significantly in my studies and clinicals."
