About The Simulation Learning Center

The UNCW School of Nursing strives to prepare students for 21st century nursing practice through the use of technology. The Simulation Learning Center uses high, medium and low fidelity human patient simulators as a teaching and learning tool for nursing education. Through the use of simulation, we strive to create a realistic environment and a powerful learning experience that promotes cognitive, affective, physical and social development of the student.

The Simulation Learning Center is a 10,000-square foot state-of-the art learning center comprised of six specialty labs, one five-room Home Care Lab and one Outpatient Clinic with three exam rooms and reception area. Wireless mobile tablets allow for bedside documentation in each lab via a UNCW created electronic medical record.

A Seminar Room (2058) with a conference table and 12 chairs is used for debriefing.

A Remote Control Room (2003) and multiple observation rooms facilitate video capture systems for recording and streaming simulation activities.
