USD Simulation Lab

Our Facility

The Nursing Center for Simulation & Interprofessional Education provides diverse simulation experiences to foster quality clinical reasoning, technical skill acquisition, communication, and interdisciplinary collaboration enhancing the practitioner's ability to provide safe, quality care to patients.

Our 1,700 square foot center offers four teaching modalities:

  • Mannequins
  • Task trainer
  • Standardized patients
  • Virtual unfolding patient cases

There are three simulation rooms with adjacent observation/debrief rooms. Our rooms replicate a hospital room. We provide immediate feedback to our students in the observation/debrief rooms.

Technicians manipulate the scenarios and record the simulations from the control room. There are a total of 13 cameras and 9 microphones in the center.
