Center for Interprofessional Health Care Simulation

Nursing student working in the sim labSaint Xavier University's School of Nursing and Health Sciences (SONHS), a National League for Nursing Center of Excellence, utilizes the Nursing/Health Science Learning Resource Lab and Center for Interprofessional Health Care Simulation to create environments which promote interactive, immersive, experiential student learning and professional growth. The importance of safety, collaboration, problem solving, decision making and clinical reasoning are integrated into hands-on learning experiences. With more restrictions placed on learning opportunities available to students in clinical placements, simulation is an important learning experience used to ensure students are able to address critical learning outcomes.
