Students work on a manikin in the Clinical Sim Lab

In the Clinical Simulation Lab, prelicensure nursing students are actively challenged with unfolding case scenarios in adult health, critical care, and bariatrics.

The lab provides an instructional/debriefing room surrounded by three hospital simulation rooms for critical care, adult health, and bariatric patients. Equipment found in the inpatient environment ensure realism for student learning and include:

  • Alaris IV pumps
  • crash cart
  • overbed lifts including a dual-motor lift in the bariatric room
  • high fidelity adult manikins for each room
  • patient monitors
  • PCA pumps
  • specialty hospital bed
  • ventilator

A control booth with one-way glass allows facilitators to remain out of view during simulation experiences and provides video recording and playback capability. In addition, there are glass walls that switch from opaque to clear for flexibility in space utilization and to block distractions.

The lab is open to any faculty in the College of Health wanting to offer students hands-on simulation scenarios.
