Clinical Skills Lab
The School of Nursing Clinical Skills Lab supports both onsite, web-supported, and distance education and consists of a cluster of teaching and learning environments. It includes hospital bedside units, exam tables, and adult and child-sized mannequins and additional equipment.
The A & P Lab was renovated in 2005 to offer state-of-the-art experiences for students. A multimedia instructor’s bench can transmit audio and video signals to each of the individual lab benches, multiple classrooms in the building and to remote locations via distance education technologies.
Each student lab bench also houses a computer and a multi-purpose monitor. The monitors can receive input from the Internet as well any of the instructor equipment, such as computer, microscope, or cadaver camera so every student has a perfect sight-line to the instructor’s demonstration. The student’s monitor also displays the output from the Internet via the computer located at the students bench itself.
Printing and Scanning
There are two service printers and a scanner available to students in room 213.
The simulation center consists of both a work room and control room. The work room can be configured in multiple ways ranging from a simple exam/interview space to a full context operating suite. Multiple fully computerized mannequins, including adult, geriatric and pediatric are available for use. The audio and video feed from this room can also be distributed within the building to multiple classrooms or sent via distance educational technologies to remote sites.
