Graduate Simulation Center

The graduate simulation center features state of the art technology including 2 adult high-fidelity manikins, 1 high-fidelity birthing mom and a high-fidelity newborn baby in realistic practice settings such as critical care patient rooms, a preoperative assessment room and a functional operating room.  Students utilize functional hospital equipment such as anesthesia machines, bronchoscopes, video-laryngoscopes and ultrasound machines to prepare for the clinical environment. The advanced health assessment lab promotes student engagement in learning via skills trainers, live patient actors, and advanced computer technology.  The simulation center also provides for a broad array of hands-on opportunities to learn epidural procedures, central line insertions, arterial line insertions, and advanced airway skills.  Audiovisual technologies allow students to participate in simulations throughout the center, stream live scenarios & debrief on-site and off-site via the web.
