Simulation training at WSU College of Nursing prepares students for professional nursing practice, and safe and equitable healthcare for all patients. Students gain experience through active learning using manikins, standardized patients, and realistic healthcare scenarios under the guidance of experienced faculty and staff. In delivering educationally sound, simulated learning experiences to students and partners, the College of Nursing is advancing the clinical competence of the healthcare workforce within WSU and our communities.
Hands-on learning in a realistic environment enhances participants’ retention and ability to apply skills and behaviors to actual patient scenarios. Simulations address both the clinical and behavioral aspects of healthcare delivery by focusing on crisis management, teamwork, leadership, sound clinical decision making, error prevention, and social justice.
On Giving Tuesday, help support the expansion of simulation training for our nursing students, as we serve as a healthcare leader and valued resource for our region.
