The Simulation Center opened in the fall of 2012. Students participate in a learning environment that improves learning outcomes through experiential learning. Simulators may be programmed to give realistic patient responses and outcomes. Simulation is used to teach the basics of nursing care, nursing skills, delegation of patient care to appropriate care providers and prioritization of patient care. Students participate in complex patient scenarios such as cardiac arrest. Simulation is not a replacement for clinical experiences, but supplements these experiences, enhancing student outcomes. High- and mid-level fidelity simulators are computerized and interactive.
