The university's SIM Satellite: a Mini Nursing Lab

Posted by Dimitri Tsalavoutas on April 28, 2015 at 11:00 AM

As some of you may know, the university has a four-year Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BScN) program that is offered collaboratively with Durham College. The main nursing lab is in Durham College, where a large facility replicates real-life situations to challenge nursing students in an environment where no harm will come to real patients. Students have the opportunity to practice as often as they need, to achieve mastery of complex nursing practice. The lab contains a 30 bed mini-hospital! Students must apply all of their nursing knowledge to help tend patients back to health. At the end of the four years, BScN graduates will write the entry to practice exam, the NCLEX.
