Learning Center Experience
Kaplan University officially opened its new
advanced simulation nursing lab at its Augusta, Maine campus on May 8 with a
ribbon cutting ceremony. Guests from the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs and
area hospitals attended the ceremony.
The new simulation nursing lab features
sophisticated technology, including high-end simulation manikins–VitalSim®
and SimMan3G®. With lungs that breathe spontaneously, heart and lung
sounds comparative to real life, eyes that move, and the capability to
recognize more than 180 different drugs among other impressive features, the
life-like manikins enhance Kaplan University nursing students’ training with
realistic medical scenarios.
“The lab’s interactive features offer our nursing students an exceptional
training experience,” said Dr. Colleen Dutile, Augusta’s Director of
Nursing. “It will help our nursing students acquire the vital skills and
knowledge they will need while complementing our nursing and medical programs
DEMONSTRATION OF NURSING LAB
During the event, attendees learned about the
benefits of health care simulations in a presentation by Dr. Dutile. Attendees
also enjoyed a reception and were given a tour of the school’s new 19,500
square foot campus.
The introduction of the lab and Kaplan University, Augusta’s
Prelicensure Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program (which began in
March) comes at an important time for Maine. According to the Maine Department
of Labor, health care careers are ranked among Maine’s fastest growing
occupations. It is anticipated 8,000 medical jobs and 2,325 registered nurse
positions will be added in Maine by 2018. Increasingly, these positions will
require advanced degrees and training. Today, nationally as well as in Maine,
approximately 20 percent of nurses have baccalaureate degrees, well short of a
national goal of 80 percent by 2020, according to established thought leaders
in the field.
“Nursing has long been an integral part of the
medical profession and continues to transform the way care is administered,”
said Dr. Christopher Quinn, president of Kaplan University’s Maine campuses. “Kaplan
University’s innovative nursing programs are designed to prepare students to
meet the unique challenges and evolution of health care careers.”
