Simulation Laboratory Resource Center


The Academy for Nursing and Health Occupations (ANHO) is excited about igniting students with a passion to learn outstanding nursing care with the use of High-Fidelity Patient Simulators (HFPS). ANHO views the use of the Sim Lab as a powerful way to build students’ confidence along with skill and ultimately foster their desire to be excellent nurses.The mission of the Sim Lab is to provide evidenced-based education preparing nurses to provide safe, competent, and compassionate care.

Our goal is to provide all nursing students the opportunity to practice nursing skills in a highly realistic health care environment. The students are able to explore the elements of nursing practice in a safe and worry-free setting.

We offer:
  • Several High-Fidelity Patient Simulators
  • Simulations in Medical-Surgical, Pediatric, Labor and Delivery, and Geriatric areas
  • Scenarios that develop thinking, reasoning, nursing judgment, and reflection skills
  • Emphasis on patient safety through promotion of the National Patient Safety Goals
  • Audio and video recording for sessions to provide optimal student learning
  • Electronic Health Record Program
