The lab can accommodate up to 12 students. Because of the type of lab functions practiced or simulated in the lab it is a controlled environment.
The nursing lab is set up to simulate a hospital setting and gives students the opportunity to practice and learn hands-on nursing skills. The lab has a patient care area with 5 beds along with a paired mannequin, bedside tables, supplies, and diagnostic equipment. There is an area for students to interact in small groups of about 16 students at a time.
