Housed in 10,000 square feet at the West Campus YSN building, the acute care and primary care simulation labs help approximately 400 students each year understand how to conduct clinical skills with high-fidelity manikins (human-like models that help students to simulate different types of medical procedures and situations).
Simulation provides a safe environment where students can enhance their clinical capabilities. It allows them to make mistakes and practice decision-making skills. The faculty create 40 different, realistic scenarios that teach students the best practices in patient safety and quality of care while also mastering heart rhythms, lung sounds, birthing, psychological assessments, and other health issues. It is the heart of the Yale School of Nursing and the largest space dedicated to teaching.
A gift of $5 million will name the Simulation Labs on the first floor and garden levels and help underwrite the future needs of our students and faculty.
