Nursing Education With a Tradition of Caring

Madonna University’s College of Nursing and Health has a state-of-the-art Nursing Simulation Lab featuring four mock hospital rooms, a home health community room, and a ten bed skills lab area. The Nursing Simulation Lab provides an innovative learning environment in which nursing students have the opportunity to provide patient care in a simulated environment, refining patient care skills and techniques to better prepare them for actual patient care experiences. Students develop knowledge and skill acquisition in a realistic, non-threatening environment, become familiar with procedures and equipment, and develop clinical reasoning skills. In the Skills Lab, students demonstrate proficiency in delivering quality and safe nursing care. In the Nursing Simulation Lab, students further develop their nursing skills and demonstrate teamwork, collaboration, and therapeutic communication skills by providing care to high-fidelity simulator patients.
