Nursing Learning Resource Center
The Nursing Learning Resource Center has specialized learning centers to provide students with hands-on experiences to learn technical, assessment, and critical thinking skills that prepare them for the competencies required for patient care in clinical practice sites.
The School is home to the Glover-Crask Simulation Center, a 10,400-square foot space that mirrors a hospital unit. Center features include:
- Five individual simulation rooms, including an obstetrics and pediatric room, with specialized simulation medical equipment
- Community space used for home care visit role-play and scenarios
- Control room for faculty simulation facilitation
- Three debriefing rooms
- Additional classrooms
- Faculty offices
The Simulation Center provides enhanced training and experience through the use of a Pyxis MedStation system, the leading automated medication dispensing system supporting decentralized medication management.
The School’s Learning Resource Center is designed to provide guided instruction for junior and senior nursing students, as well as resources for graduate students.
The facility contains two major nursing laboratories. The nursing skills lab is an undergraduate skills laboratory with equipment, supplies, and medium fidelity simulation mannequins for practice of technical skills in simulated hospital or nursing home settings. The Health Assessment Lab includes examination tables and equipment found in ambulatory/primary care settings.
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.
