Primary Center

The Primary Center has six mid fidelity simulators of varying ethnicities and genders. This room is primarily used during the first year of the nursing program for learning and practicing caring interventions on a simulator which has heart sounds, breath sounds, bowel sounds, pulses and a blood pressure. To increase the realism of the experience, the simulation staff and nursing instructors can "talk" for the patient during encounters, adjust the simulator's vital signs, and add "moulage," (French for the art of applying mock injuries for training) to the simulators to simulate multisystem modalities.
