Nursing Labs

Students learn nursing skills in labs located in Diehl Hall. They practice on simulators, task trainers, and sometimes on their classmates!

Students benefit from practicing a skill in the lab before they perform it on an actual patient - and the patient benefits by receiving safe care. Examples of skills learned in the lab:

  • Vital signs
  • Surgical dressing change
  • Intravenous medications
  • ECGs

Critical Care Equipment

Students use patient monitors, defibrillator, ventilator, ECG machines, bladder scanner, and intravenous infusion pumps.
