Learning Resource Center

Obstetric simulation


The Learning Resource Center (LRC) in the College of Nursing provides well-equipped and future-oriented clinical simulation labs for undergraduate and graduate nursing students to practice new skills or to carry out simulation activities in health assessment, basic nursing, adult health, maternal/child health, critical care, community health and anesthesia. These experiences include mannequin based and "standardized patient" experiences.

The LRC houses extensive media, technical and community health nursing resources that are available to students.

The LRC is more than just a high-tech environment. Just as critical to its operations are its staff who work closely with faculty to provide the ideal learning enviroment to dovetail with teaching strategies.
