Simulation Center

Sim Center

The Simulation Center is an award-winning center that opened in the Fall of 2012. The center was awarded a 2013 AV Technology End-User Award and an InfoComm People's Choice Award in 2013. The Dwight Schar College of Nursing & Health Sciences building is home to an automated and streamlined educational technology program, which provides students with an experiential environment tha timproves learning outcomes. The multi-disciplinary sim lab features a total of 32 Hill-rom beds and head-wall units that give the appearance of a fully functional hospital wing. 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.
