Clinical Simulation Labs

For students, the opportunity to learn, practice, and be evaluated on clinical skills in UMSON’s state-of-the-art clinical simulation laboratories is an invaluable experience in their transformation from students to practicing nurses.  UMSON’s 24 simulation labs provide hands-on experience in nearly every nursing specialty, including anesthesia, surgical, primary care, obstetrics, and pediatrics.  Realistic clinical situations are created using high fidelity mannequins and equipment similar to what students will encounter in hospitals and other health care settings. 

Costs to maintain the simulation labs range from day-to-day equipment to high-tech beds and mannequins.  Your gift can help purchase supplies such as:
