The Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas (CSCLV) is a 31,000 square-foot educational facility located on University of Nevada, Las Vegas’ Shadow Lane Campus. Students from University of Nevada, Las Vegas - School of Nursing (and the Kirk Kerkorian School of Medicine at UNLV) learn and practice their clinical competency skills using low and high fidelity manikins, standardized patient interactions, simulations, and surgical labs. The Sim Center provides an in-depth experience that emulates a real hospital setting.
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 manikins, 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.
Sessions are recorded and played back for student discussion and valuable learning experiences.
