The Nursing Department at Missouri Western State University is preparing for national re-accreditation of the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) programs by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). A site visit has been scheduled from February 22-24, 2023. Interested parties are invited to submit comments directly to CCNE @ by February 1, 2023.

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.
