The Dwight Schar College of Nursing academic facility, located in Mansfield, is home to new, state-of-the-art equipment for the nursing experience. Students enrolled in the nursing program will take classes on the AU main campus, in classroom and laboratory/simulation spaces located in Mansfield, and in the online environment. Campus housing is available on both the main campus and Mansfield campus. Students learn from expert faculty in the nine fully-equipped multimedia classrooms housed in the academic building, as well as the Simulation Center, where student nurses encounter situations vital to their learning experience. The simulation laboratories include a health foundations laboratory, family health laboratory, adult health laboratory, complex health laboratory, intensive care/advanced care laboratories, community health laboratory, and examination rooms. High and mid-level fidelity simulators are computerized and interactive. They may be programmed to give realistic patient responses and outcomes. Simulation is used to teach the basics of nursing care, nursing skills such as intravenous, Foley catheter, and nasogastric insertions. Students participate in complex patient scenarios, such as cardiac arrest. Students also participate with clinical sites to apply knowledge learned in coursework and simulation. The College has affiliation agreements with over 65 clinical agencies.
