Artificial Patients. Authentic Experience.

Nurses in ambulance with simulated patient

Absorbing the second-floor visuals of St. Elizabeth School of Nursing’s Simulation Lab (SIM Lab), a typical assortment of equipment catches one’s eye: crash carts, blood pressure cuffs, oxygen tanks and tubing. Then there’s Maggie: a high-fidelity manikin that simulates the birthing process. Maggie may experience postpartum hemorrhage, demand comfort and reassurance as the life of her newborn hangs in the balance, or her delivery may conclude in the perfect picture of technological bliss. Just a small sampling of scenarios students encounter in the most life-like setting possible as they prepare to become nurses.
