Simulation

The School of Nursing is recognized nationally as an innovator in nursing education, and a leader in teaching technologies. Here, academic innovation is inspired not just by our mission to engage and educate our students while they are with us, but to prepare them for success in their careers as practitioners, researchers, educators, and leaders.

Through experiential learning, students gain realistic insight to every aspect of their future roles in nursing—from patient interaction and care, to solving clinical problems, to communicating and collaborating within a health care team. The deliberate practice and rigorous self-reflection associated with simulation provides our students the invaluable opportunity to exercise their clinical reasoning in a safe learning environment.

By integrating active learning techniques and strategies within our curriculum at every educational level, our simulation experts and instructional designers ensure that our students gain proficiency in clinical assessment and procedures, improved critical thinking skills, and confidence, which will ultimately make them better nurses.

As nurses, we have always embraced evidence-based practice, and one of my goals is to help foster more evidence-based teaching. What we know is that our students learn so much more from engaged, active participation in hands-on learning.
