Simulations play a vital role in the development of your clinical skills as a nursing student. Our practical educational exercises put your problem-solving, teamwork, and clinical reasoning skills to the test as you provide care for a variety of patient demographics. The best part is that you’ll learn in a relaxed setting where you can learn from your errors without endangering actual patients.

Benefits of Simulation

Simulation is a strategy, not a technology. Simulation allows students to engage in experiential learning, enhances their use of technology, places more emphasis on outcomes versus process, and provides an avenue to incorporate more evidence-based strategies throughout the curriculum. Consequently, simulation outcomes include improved patient safety, enhanced preparation of new nursing graduates, and reduced reliance on traditional clinical sites, while supporting innovation in teaching strategies.

Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators

The School of Nursing (SON) currently employs multiple Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators (CHSE). According to the Society for Simulation in Healthcare, there are fewer than 1,200 Certified Healthcare Simulation Educators in the United States.
