Simulation Center Tour
Our students learn to become nurses in our state-of-the-art Clinical Simulation Center, the largest of its kind west of the Mississippi.
The Simulation Center has five high-fidelity simulation rooms that recreate a specific hospital environment such as an emergency department and a delivery room.
Using high-tech mannequins, nursing students take vital signs and practice professional communication, team management, task performance and decision making.
Through a two-way mirror, faculty and staff monitor student performance and can alter the patient’s symptoms and behavior to make situations simulate real life, such as an allergic reaction or giving birth, as shown in this photo.
The center is a unique collaboration among the nursing schools at UNLV and Nevada State College and the University of Nevada School of Medicine. Future nurses and doctors train alongside each other, making simulations all the more realistic.
