Lee’s School Of Nursing Celebrates Healthcare Simulation Week

Friday, October 4, 2019 - by Cana Cooper, Lee University

Lee University celebrated Healthcare Simulation Week by welcoming students and staff to meet its newest manikin, Nursing Anne Simulator, at an Open House held at the School of Nursing. 

Attendees were given the opportunity to take selfies with the new manikin and enjoy lunch from Food NV, a local food truck brought to campus for the event.

Nursing Anne Simulator is a manikin that offers students realistic practice on core nursing skills. Students are able to apply patient care procedures in a safe environment for improvement in their nursing education.

“Working in a simulated environment allows our nursing students to make mistakes without the need for any immediate intervention,” said Shannon McBrayer, SON professional practice coordinator and lecturer in nursing.

The SON simulation area, which features six hospital-like rooms and a telehealth room, uses a variety of simulators to assist students with decision-making and skill application. Students are able to respond to mock heart attacks, treat wounds, converse with patients, and assist with births, all through simulation.

“This application helps our students gain powerful insight into the consequences of their actions, enabling them to correct any mistakes before moving forward,” said Ms. McBrayer.

Healthcare Simulation Week is nationally celebrated Sept. 16-20. Healthcare simulation is a learning tool that recreates a clinical environment to allow persons to experience a realistic healthcare event. The goal of healthcare simulation week is to increase awareness among the public of the importance of simulation to healthcare, and celebrates professionals who use healthcare simulation to improve the safety, effectiveness, and efficiency of healthcare delivery.
