Nursing Simulation Lab
Getting you as close as possible to real-life clinical situations, our nursing simulation lab takes your nursing competency to the next level by way of a computerized medical manikin. Able to simulate a variety of symptoms, from blood loss to breathing difficulty, the manikin lets you actively engage in patient assessment and treatment. Under faculty control, the manikin can also ask questions and replicate bodily responses to procedures, such as intubation and catheterization.
We record these simulations so that you and your instructor can debrief on your clinical performance. Simulation debriefings are invaluable because they allow you to learn from and correct your mistakes under the guidance of faculty. As you progress in the ABSN program, the intent will be for you to lead these debriefings, explaining the rationale behind your approach prior to receiving feedback.
Because they require you to think on your feet and act on instinct, nursing simulations do a great job in preparing you for clinical practice. These experiences can also expose you to high-pressure critical care situations that are not available through clinicals.
