- A 13-bed fundamentals lab simulates an acute in-patient hospital setting with low and medium fidelity mannequins and equipment to provide students with a safe high-tech setting to master a wide variety of skills
- A health assessment lab with six exam tables replicate provider or out-patient settings where students learn to complete comprehensive health histories and perform complete head-to-toe physical exams
- A state-of-the-art high fidelity simulation center with three adult simulators, a child simulator and an obstetric simulator with newborn provides students with opportunities to master advanced level clinical skills using state of the art technology to demonstrate critical thinking, decision-making, and communication skills critical to patient safety and high quality patient care outcomes.
The full-time learning resources coordinator, learning resources director, and full-time simulation lab director coordinate learning activities and provide a safe, caring environment for students to learn skills and practice evidence-based patient care.
