The College of Nursing has integrated simulation into some of its programs' curricula. Details appear below.
Nurse Anesthesia (MSN) Program
Similar to the Anesthesiology Residency Program, students are introduced to equipment, principles, protocols and procedures. Much like the residency programs, student nurse anesthetists participate in various exercises replicating experiences in the operating room. Currently, three courses within the Nurse Anesthesia program utilize the simulation lab:
NUR 541Master's Practicuum
NUR 548 MSN Capstone Project
BHV 505 Interdisciplinary Studies in Pallative Care

Acute/Chronic Care Pediatric Nurse Practitioner (AC PNP) Program
In the NUR 533R course, simulation is used to provide students with an opportunity to practice their leadership role in responding to rapidly changing clinical conditions, including the recognition and management of emerging health crises and organ dysfunction/failure. Course objectives are patient stabilization, minimization of complications, and promotion of physical and psychological well-being.
