There, you will work alongside your instructors to gain hands-on nursing skills practice using two types of high-tech medical manikins: a task trainer for learning skills such as inserting IVs and conducting basic wound care, and a high-fidelity human patient simulator that can realistically simulate a wide variety of bodily functions and medical conditions. Controlled by your clinical instructors, these manikins can even react to treatments and medications.

Our nursing skills and simulation labs help you develop critical-thinking, problem-solving and decision-making skills in a controlled, risk-free environment. This means that you are able to make and correct mistakes without putting anyone in danger. As a result, you can begin your clinical rotations feeling prepared to work alongside actual RNs and provide patient care.

Nursing Simulation Labs Provide a Dose of Reality

Our nursing simulation labs get you as close as possible to genuine patient-care situations, affording you the skills and confidence necessary to succeed during your clinical rotations.
