Learning Center Experience
Discover the features and facilities of our Omaha, Nebraska campus and how we are here to support your educational goals.
The Omaha, Nebraska campus is located at 5425 North 103rd Street and occupies a 42,000 square-foot building that includes specialty built classrooms, computer and medical labs, student lounge facilities, and administrative offices. Our facilities are also partially accessible to persons with physical impairments.
The campus boasts a learning resource center with access to a robust electronic library and small group or one-on-one tutoring. Our learning resource center contains a variety of current journals, publications, and other resources for research and general studies. In addition, students have access to additional library services through the State Open Access Program.
While on campus students can enjoy open door access to the campus Financial Aid Office, Student Accounts, Admissions, Student Advising, and Career Services departments. Students can relax between classes in the student lounge, which features large windows with lots of sun, a big screen television, seating for 40, vending machines, and a community board.
During lab sessions, students could receive hands-on training in medical, dental, nursing, criminal justice, and legal simulations labs. See below to learn more about our labs.
During lab sessions, students will receive hands-on training in phlebotomy, injections, capillary punctures, EKG's, urinalysis, sterilization of instruments and much more.The medical assistant lab contains much of the equipment you would find in a general practitioner's office including exam tables, EKG machines, sphygmomanometers, an autoclave, urinalysis and cholestek machines, a microspin, centrifuge, and other various testing kits for glucose, hemoglobin, pregnancy, and streptococcus.
The students are held to the same standards as they would be in an actual office setting. The lab simulations encompass everything from assessing the chief complaint of the patient to obtaining vitals and running tests (depending on the simulation), to patient education and documentation.
The nursing lab includes two practical, hands-on training labs where students have the opportunity to practice their skills using the clinical equipment listed below.
Basic Care Lab - equipped with 8 beds and a variety of adult and infant manikins. Each bed site has wall connections for O2 and suction, and connections for a PC. Attached to the lab is a lavatory, a medication preparation area with sink, cabinets, and room for a mobile medication cart.
Simulation Lab - In this lab, you'll use the Laerdal SimMan®. Kaplan University has 3 low-fidelity adult manikins that breathe, speak, and have realistic lung, heart and bowel sounds. "Noelle," a pregnant manikin, is also a part of the simulation experience. Noelle can give birth and simulate obstetric complications. By using simulators in place of human patients, students no longer have to rely on clinical rotations to gain all their experience. Simulations also give students the chance to learn how to communicate with other health care providers such as medical staff, ancillary personnel, and family members.
The lab can accommodate hands on learning for up to 15 students at one time and contains 4 fully functional dental operatories with x-ray units which are used by the radiology classes, 5 Dexter manikins for exposing radiographs, and 4 manikins to practice dental procedures on. In the Dental Materials class students take impressions and make casts in the lab. Students are held to the same standards as they would be in an actual office setting.
