Patient Safety

Our clinical simulation programs offer students a supportive learning environment where they put their knowledge and skills into action prior to clinical rotations. Through skills labs and live demonstrations, nursing faculty and simulation staff create a variety of complex and challenging scenarios that provide students with experiences they are likely to encounter in a live clinical environment.

They learn in a simulated clinical environment where mistakes can occur without adverse consequences to a live patient. Students learn to prioritize and delegate multiple patients with complex needs, collaborate within multidisciplinary healthcare teams and communicate with family members.

As students learn from their experiences, they develop increased competence and confidence, ultimately enhancing their ability to provide exceptional patient care.

Diversity and Cultural Awareness

The Clinical Simulation Institute incorporates diversity and cultural awareness in its simulation programs. In different clinical scenarios, patient simulators are assigned a name, medical history and condition, as well as a particular religious and cultural background.

Faculty and staff develop various scenarios that allow students to identify and respect different cultural needs so they become aware of them once they start working with real patients. As a result, students become more knowledgeable in providing care to a diverse patient population.
