  • 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.
