Simulation Laboratory

The newly renovated Nursing Simulation Laboratory was unveiled in April 2009 during a weekend of celebrating the forty-fifth anniversary of nursing at Penn State.

About the Simulation Laboratory

The Nursing Simulation Laboratory is designed to give students hands-on clinical experience and includes numerous wards:

  • An intensive care unit
  • A pediatric room
  • A maternity room
  • A "fundamentals" laboratory
  • A three-room primary care suite

Each room is occupied by high-tech mannequins that simulate symptoms, diseases, and conditions that nurses are likely to see in a real care setting (for example, the maternity room includes a mannequin that delivers a baby).
