Video: Why Are Simulation Labs So Important in Nursing School?

Why Simulation Labs

Simulation labs are an opportunity to practice your nursing skills in a safe but realistic environment until you feel confident. Sim labs give you the opportunity to run through all kinds of scenarios you may encounter on the job so that when you start your clinical rotations, you feel like you’ve mastered your skills.

West Coast University simulation labs are equipped with high-fidelity manikins that react just like real patients. Their pupils dilate. Their blood pressures rise and drop. They can even give birth! As a nursing student at WCU, you’ll be able to practice how to draw blood, administer drugs, listen to chest sounds, respond to changes in a patient’s condition, and more.

At WCU, we don’t just aim to equip you with knowledge. We want to arm you with confidence—and our simulation labs are an integral part of that effort.
