Missouri Western offers a Nursing Simulation Lab complete with equipment, simulators, mannequins, supplies, printed resources, CDs, video and audio tapes, and computer resources to facilitate multi-sensory learning of technical, interpersonal and critical thinking skills.
It is staffed by a Nursing Simulation Lab Coordinator and Laboratory Teaching Assistants (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.
