Niagara University Unveils Nursing Simulation Center
Niagara University formally unveiled its new Nursing Simulation Center during a blessing and dedication ceremony that was held Saturday, Oct. 10.
The state-of-the-art, $1.5 million facility, located in Dunleavy Hall, will provide “hands-on” opportunities for students to manage patient encounters and skills in a risk-free, virtual reality environment, while supporting traditional classroom learning and clinical practice experiences.
The center will also offer opportunities for inter-professional experiential learning. Students will gain a greater understanding of patient assessment and care and become adept at responding to complex situations in a timely manner with competency and confidence.
