Nursing Lab

Fully-equipped lab with state-of-the-art, high-tech equipment. Students take part in innovative hospital simulations using high-tech mannequins that simulate various nursing practice scenarios, practice moving patients with lifts and gain understanding of the patient/client experience. The lab is a designated nursing station in case of a community emergency.

Lab Experiences

Laboratory experiences (labs) help students become practiced and confident giving injections, transferring and mobilizing patients, using effective communication techniques, and more. Nursing students also develop critical thinking skills while learning how to give safe, competent care to patients and families.

The Nursing Simulation Centre is located next to the main lab area. Simulation helps students develop the thinking and psycho-motor skills essential for safe and effective nursing practice. Task trainers, mannequins, and computer software simulate real medical emergency simulations.
