Simulation is a technique used to enhance the learning experience by creating a realistic clinical experience in a controlled environment. Using simulation, faculty can offer students a variety of scheduled learning experiences that are difficult to obtain in real life. Therefore, students can immerse themselves in critical thinking exercises and hands-on nursing skills in a simulated environment that is supportive of their learning needs.
At the Center for Clinical Learning, we provide diverse perspectives on caring for patients across the continuum of care. Using full-body, high-fidelity mannequin simulators, various task trainers, and customized scenarios in our clinical evaluation rooms, students participate in a learning experience in which patient care, clinical skills, communication, clinical decision making, ethical considerations, and nursing trends are emphasized.
