    • Providing valuable hands-on experience in a controlled environment, the Bloomberg Nursing Simulation Lab (Sim Lab) is a state-of-the art facility, designed to provide flexibility in a variety of teaching and learning contexts.

      This 4,000 square foot space is equipped with:

      • an inpatient ward with twelve beds and a large nursing station
      • a critical care unit with four patient beds
      • the Bluma Appel Isolation Room,  an isolation room with an ante- and exit room
      • a full operating room
      • a one-bed post-anaesthesia care unit
      • a home care setting living space, that also works as an interview or ambulatory clinic room.

      In the Sim Lab, our students can study, practice and repeat techniques as often as necessary in order to fine-tune their skills and optimize clinical outcomes in a setting that allows them to build their confidence and competence before using those skills in the field. Under the watchful eyes of experienced professors, students learn both the technical skills required but also experiential learned skills, like teamwork, critical thinking, decision making and prioritization.

      Our Sim Lab is one of the most important spaces to our Faculty, with each and every one of our 355 undergraduate and 167 nurse practitioner students making important use of the lab. When nurses graduate from Bloomberg Nursing, we are proud to say that they are both confident and competent; our Sim Lab and its simulators play a significant role in this achievement.

    Student Lounge

    Designed as a space for students to take a moment and pause during a hectic day, meet with their peers, grab a snack, or participate in student government, Bloomberg Nursing opened its new student lounge in summer 2015. Located on the third floor of the Health Sciences Building, this brand-new space features sweeping views over College Street and the Lassonde Mining Building across the way. A large kitchen, vending machines, and flexible seating arrangements are dedicated spaces for students to relax and work in. Wireless print stations are installed here, allowing students to print from anywhere in the lounge on their own laptops. The space can be divided into three independent zones, offering opportunities for a seminar or presentation in one section while a yoga class happens in another.

    Here you will also find the offices of the Nursing Undergraduate Society (NUS) and Graduate Nurses’ Student Society (GNSS), and flexible meeting rooms to accommodate various student groups. All of this is controlled by the students, for students.

    It’s your space.
