The University of San Francisco: School of Nursing

Simulation Lab

The Simulation Lab gives students the opportunity to use a hands-on approach to patient care and treatment within a sophisticated, simulated clinical environment.

In the Simulation Lab, nursing students interact with state-of-the- art mannequins that simulate symptoms and conditions specific to real-life patients and scenarios. The Simulation Lab houses an entire family of mannequins including adults, pediatrics and obstetrics.

  • Students have the opportunity to care for various patients throughout the simulation curriculum.
  • Examples of scenarios include caring for patients with sepsis, stroke, hemorrhage, or cancer.
  • Students also engage with other disciplines to enhance communication and team building skills.
