The Simulation Lab is an environment for nursing students to integrate theory with practice allowing for students to deliver patient care in a no-risk environment prior to entering the hospital setting. Simulation allows for the promotion of student success and academic excellence.
Lincoln University's School of Nursing has 2 high fidelity adult simulators, 1 high fidelity infant simulator along with several additional simulators which students interact with to provide holistic care. Utilizing simulation in the nursing program assists students to think critically about the nursing process and allows for collaboration with peers. Students are able to build on previous learning and explore how to balance and prioritize patient care during the simulated clinical experience. Students are actively involved in simulation during each semester of the nursing program, allowing students to build confidence and work on vital nursing skills presented in the theory portion of courses.
In addition to the simulation lab, a student practice lab is available. Students have access to patient simulators to practice assessment and skills during their free time. The Simulation Nursing Instructor and faculty are available to students during office hours to help guide them with their nursing skills in the practice lab.
