Nursing Building The College of Nursing features a 10,615 square foot Learning and Technology Resource Center (LTRC) that is located on the third floor of the College of Nursing. The LTRC is a state of the art facility which houses a 16-bed hospital lab, 16-table assessment room, four advanced practice provider clinical examination rooms, an IV practice room, a Pyxis medication room, and debriefing rooms. The LTRC provides a mock hospital for clinical experiences that includes six high-fidelity simulation laboratories with digital video and audio management systems; four medical-surgical suites, an ICU suite, an obstetric/pediatric four-bed laboratory, and four telehealth robots to enhance distance education and provide clinical collaboration.

Human Patient Simulators

The simulation laboratories feature the latest in high fidelity human patient simulators and include three adult simulators, two obstetric simulators, two infant simulators, and one pediatric simulator. In addition to the high-fidelity simulators, the center offers low fidelity manikins and task trainers.

Simulation Experiences

Clinical simulation experiences are captured via a video capture system which can be viewed anywhere on campus in both real-time and from previously recorded experiences, which provides the opportunity to share the benefits of simulation with larger audiences.

The LTRC is supported by an Executive Director, Learning Resource Center Specialist, Healthcare Simulation Technician, Information Technology Specialist, Instructional Technology Specialist, graduate teaching assistants, and student workers. Usual hours of operation are 8:00 am to 5:00 pm (CST) Monday through Friday.
