IMMACULATA, PA — Immaculata University Division of Nursing had a ribbon-cutting event for their new simulation lab and celebrated their first-time pass-rate of the 2018-2019 National Council Licensure Examination (NCLEX-RN) of 96.67%, higher than the state and national averages.
“Simulation-based education is proven to achieve specific goals relating to patient safety,” states Tracy Gilbert ’19 BSN, who spoke at the ribbon-cutting event. “The hands on approach to learning is definitely effective in helping nursing students gain more confidence in their nursing skills.”
The simulation lab consists of a four-bed hospital room and separate spaces for observing and debriefing. The new lab will use human patient simulators and standardized patients to facilitate the learning of several skills including hands-on skills as well as communication, which are necessary for students to be safe and proficient in the clinical area.
“Immaculata University’s new nursing simulation lab provides a safe environment to promote clinical competence, teamwork, reflective practice and self-confidence. Immaculata nursing students are gaining great experience before they begin work in a clinical setting, seeing patients,” states Dr. Angela Tekely, provost & vice president for Academic Affairs.
Immaculata University’s new nursing simulation lab was made possible due in part to contributions from the Henry A. Quinn Charitable Foundation; the Caroline Sanders Trust; the Anna-Maria Moggio Foundation; and Hospital Central Services, Inc. & Affiliates.
Immaculata offers a variety of undergraduate and graduate nursing programs that provide the knowledge and skills needed to provide holistic, competent, and patient-centered care.
