At our School of Nursing, you will learn from our simulation suite; an environment designed to replicate a medical/surgical ward, as well as a primary and mental health facility. This is a problem-based, hands-on way of learning which is a safe alternative for you to practice real-life, clinical scenarios under the guidance of a lecturer without having to leave the Dunedin campus.
The Simulation Suite
Our Simulation Suite is designed to replicate a medical/surgical ward, as well as a primary and mental health facility. Here you will be able to participate in a variety of scenarios to help support and develop your knowledge and skills. This will help to prepare you for clinical placements in these areas.
We have a variety of simulators ranging from an ALS (advanced life support) to our brand new tetherless simulators. These have realistic features such as active eyes, palpable pulses and programmable airways.
With our simulators, you are able to practice clinical skills such as taking a blood pressure and pulse, listening for and recognising different cardiac and respiratory patterns, and practicing resuscitation skills and airway management.
Another aspect of simulation is the debriefing process. This is facilitated by the simulation lecturer and gives you the opportunity to discuss and reflect on your simulation experience.
