Clinical Learning Center

Our state-of the-art clinical learning facility engages our students in a dynamic, experiential learning environment. Active learning fosters greater understanding, retention, and advanced clinical reasoning.

Simulation suites are equipped with high-fidelity manikins that replicate realistic healthcare scenarios. The skills lab is used to develop basic and advanced skills allowing the students to apply their knowledge of nursing theory in an interactive, challenging, and safe learning environment. Students are supported and mentored to gain experience and confidence.
