WNCC Nursing Program Hosts Simulation Day

March 09, 2016
Western Nebraska Community College's Nursing Program recently conducted a simulation learning activity on the Scottsbluff Campus for practical and associate degree nursing students. 62 students representing all three WNCC campuses (Alliance, Scottsbluff, and Sidney) gathered at the John N. Harms Advanced Technology Center for the all-day event.
WNCC nursing faculty created a wide variety of patient problems that provided students the opportunity to train in a safe and risk free simulated healthcare environment. The activities were developed to integrate five student learning outcomes that focus on safety, patient-centered care, collaboration and communication, inquiry-based practice, and professionalism. These learning outcomes assist students in developing confidence and competence.
