USF Leads the Way to Better Trained Nurses

Clinical Skills Lab

The Clinical Skills Lab, formally known as the Learning Resource Center (LRC), houses the latest hospital equipment and medical supplies. Established from evidence-based principles and methods, the lab provides opportunity for nursing students to learn, develop, and improve patient-centered care.

The historically known Learning Resource Center was dedicated to Sister Geraldine McDonnell and provided nursing students a facility to practice their patient-care skills within a real-world, clinical milieu. Today, the Clinical Skills Lab continues to be a key foundation and educational resource for nursing students. Our goal is to continue to strive and achieve competency of clinical knowledge, skills, and attitude within a safe and supportive environment.

Location: Cowell Hall 108, University of San Francisco (main campus)
