Simulation at UB School of Nursing

Experience real health care scenarios before interacting with real patients.

The application and use of high-fidelity simulation technologies for the improvement of health care education is vital to our academic programs. Simulation is incorporated in our undergraduate programs and our clinically focused graduate programs. In addition to working with mannequins, students also learn valuable interpersonal communication skills. After each simulation scenario, students review their performance with faculty to discuss what went well and identify areas for improvement.

  • Operating Room Simulation
    The School of Nursing operating room provides high fidelity simulation experiences for nurse anesthesia students to build and improve skills with the guidance of expert faculty.
  • Clinical Skills Lab
    The entire fourth floor of Wende Hall is dedicated to the clinical skills lab, where students can hone their clinical skills to gain confidence before working with patients.
  • Health Assessment Lab
    The physical assessment lab suite is located in Wende Hall on the ground floor.
  • Behling Human Simulation Center
    Advancing interdisciplinary, cooperative skills, the Behling Simulation Center prepares our students to meet the challenges of the contemporary health care environment. In eight flexible clinical settings, students practice procedures ranging from inserting catheters and delivering babies to resuscitating injured patients.
