Through an innovative collaboration between Elmhurst College and Elmhurst Memorial Hospital, undergraduate and graduate nursing students at Elmhurst College have access to a state-of-the-art Simulation Center located at the hospital. Through interactive learning, students build their clinical knowledge and skills through active, hands-on clinical scenarios.
This 4,600-square-foot laboratory and classroom space includes healthcare environments that represent inpatient, outpatient and community settings. Using simulation, students have the opportunity to practice protocols and procedures and experience intense scenarios safely and without the risk of harm to patients. Simulation/simulated learning enhances critical thinking, builds confidence and allows for reflection and evaluation of best practices outside of the high-stakes, high-stress clinical environment.
The Elmhurst College Simulation Center at Elmhurst Memorial Hospital opened in August 2014.
