The Facility

The Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas (CSCLV) is a 31,000-square-foot facility that opened at the NSHE Shadow Lane Campus in August 2009 and is shared among the University of Nevada, Las Vegas (UNLV) School of Nursing. This Clinical Simulation Center provides state-of-the-art health care education equipment throughout the five high-fidelity simulation labs, three clinical skills labs, a surgical simulation suite, twelve standardized patient rooms, and four multi-purpose classrooms. The entire facility is integrated by an all-encompassing audio-video management system.

Nursing students are educated in this facility promoting greater collaboration among future health care providers. The administration of the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas looks to standardize simulation operations and maximize learner results. Our faculty have received hundreds of hours of training in healthcare simulation topics ranging from scenario design, operations and facilitation, as well as the crucial practices of advanced debriefing.
