Simulation Learning

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.

Please contact Debora Tracey (, assistant dean of the Center for Clinical Learning, by email or submit a request to use Center for Clinical Learning space or other resources to discuss simulated educational learning experiences.
