About the Simulation Lab:
Our simulation laboratory is located on “connector A10 wing N3 L-4”. It is approximately 1500-square-foot facility that
will serve as a major regional educational resource and a Lab of excellence for
simulation training and research. It provides students with the opportunity to
tackle real-life skills and health-related scenarios in a safe and supported
environment prior to applying these skills in the clinical setting.There are five
individual simulation rooms each with a specific focus on medical/surgical,
health assessment, maternal-child, and critical care nursing skills. The lab
features two high-fidelity Critical-care simulation room, one high-fidelity
Maternal/Child simulation room, two classrooms/debriefing areas, one medium
fidelity nursing skills practice room.
lab also features a family of high-fidelity mannequins including two adult
simulation mannequins, a birthing simulator with newborn, and two pediatric
The simulation Lab is equipped with
Advanced Audio/Video system allows for debriefing, monitoring, and recording of
individual and team performances during a simulation. All of which provide the
opportunity for faculty and students to simulate complicated patient situations
in a simulated environment with low, medium, and high-fidelity mannequins.
The following is
details about each room service at simulation lab:
1.Medical Surgical Simulation room (Sim man Room):
The Medical-Surgical Laboratory is a
state-of-the-art facility that functions as a skills and simulation laboratory.
Students are able to build personal confidence through hands on experience. A
hands on practice approach to using actual hospital equipment is an essential
part of the laboratory experience and patient simulators are provided to
facilitate clinical skill competency.Fortunately,students are provided with the opportunity to learn basic nursing skills in the
laboratory during the 2nd year of nursing school.
multiple scenario based laboratory experiences students are able to improve
decision making, delegation, and teamwork skills while gaining the principles
of technical skills.
the laboratory there are 4 hospital beds and one exam tables designed to
closely approximate a hospital environment. These areas are stocked with
state-of-the-art supplies and hospital equipment for students to practice both
basic and advanced nursing technologies.
In addition to scheduled laboratory sessions,
the laboratory remains open from 2pm – 4pm
for any nursing student who feels they need improvement in a particular
nursing skill. Instructors encourage student participation at the sessions as
practice helps students incorporate skills learned in the lab into the clinical
2.Critical care simulation room ( High fidelity Room):
The Critical Care Lab is designed to provide
high fidelity simulations for students who are learning about critical care or
desire to refine their critical care skills. The lab is also utilized by master
students and the critical care nursing
elective. The simulation area is meant to enhance the content students are
learning and provide realistic equipment, sounds,and monitors for the
particular simulation. Through small group simulations,the patient simulators
allow students to intervene to help a patient experiencing chest pain,code
blue,collapsed lung, slow heart rate,or traumatic injury.
3.Maternal/Child simulation room ( Noelle S 575 with newborn baby):
birthing mannequin named Noelle, which can simulate normal/abnormal birthing
room attached for observation and videotaping of scenerios,Debrifing
Computer Interactive NOELLE™ and Newborn Hal offer learners the opportunity to
care for the mother and fetus before and the mother and neonate after delivery.
Noelle provides students a complete first hand birthing experience before,
during, and after delivery with the ability to endure related complications.
4.Multi Purpose Room ( Vital Sim Kelly , Little Annie, Gaumard Als III code system, Virtual IV for Adult):
This room specialized
for Low to medium fedility procedurs and it includes
cannulation for Adult, Basic life supports training, Vital signs training.
The Adult Virtual
I.V. Self-Directed Learning System includes 150 distinct case scenarios.42
unique, anatomically accurate, interactive 3-D arm models span human variation
in terms of ethnicity, size age and sex, guaranteeing learners access to a
diverse group of patients.Incorporates 5 distinctive training types: procedure
overview, system overview, anatomical viewer, competency training and practice
Powerful 3D Graphics Provide Visual Realism
Creating an Immersive Environment
Powerful 3D graphics provide visual realism, while a state-of-the-art force
feedback device accurately simulates the sense of touch for a truly immersive
- The Anatomical Viewer allows the student to
reposition the arm and isolate particular anatomical features (i.e.: skin,
nerves, arteries, muscles, fascia and bones).
|Effective Simulation Training in a Risk-free Environment|
- Virtual IV simulation provides standardized educational content, training methodology and performance measurement improving learners confidence before entering a clinical environment.
- Applies to multi-level education; Initial and Continuing Education through to Remediation and Recertification.
- A comprehensive portfolio of case scenarios presents students with the clinical information needed to execute each procedure, build decision making skills, challenge their knowledge, and master the procedures required to perform cannulation.
- The self-directed learning system records and evaluates students' performance and presents a thorough debriefing following each case. The debriefing gives students both positive reinforcement, as well as clear instruction that can be used to improve their abilities and training.
8:00 AM to 4:00 PM
*Lab hours may be
adjusted each semester based on student needs and staffing.
