Missouri Western offers a Simulation Lab complete with equipment, simulators, manikins, supplies, printed resources, recording equipment, and computer resources to facilitate a multi-sensory learning of technical, interpersonal, and critical thinking skills.
The lab is staffed by a Nursing Simulation Lab Director and Laboratory Teaching Assistances (LTAs), who are select nursing students. The nursing lab team strives to:
Project a service-oriented, supportive, respectful and friendly attitude.
Demonstrate, teach, and explain with a focus on rationales.
Move from the simple to the complex, and from that which is familiar to the relatively unfamiliar.
Respectfully require a high, but attainable, level of competence.
The Nursing Simulation Lab is available for independent practice, guided practice, and validations.
