On-Site Nursing Simulation Labs
Experiential learning is essential for creating practice-ready nurses and that’s why our nursing simulation labs are designed to give you training in state-of-the-art labs that are just like the environments you will encounter as a RN. These labs provide you with a dose of reality so you can learn how to safely apply the nursing concepts you learned online. You are able to get as close as possible to patient-care situations to build the confidence and real-world skills necessary to become a successful nurse. Our nursing skills lab helps you utilize complex thinking to analyze holistic health needs of individuals, families, groups, communities, and populations. As a result, you can begin your clinical rotations feeling prepared to work alongside practicing RNs and provide patient care.
Working with Faculty
Concordia University Texas offers a small, caring Christian community that encourages student and faculty interaction and promotes individual attention. During your lab work, you will work alongside your instructors to gain hands-on nursing skills using high-tech manikins that can simulate a variety of bodily functions and reactions to medications.
With the faculty supervision, you are able to:
- Participate in hands-on learning strategies that are similar to clinical experiences.
- Apply basic skills like checking vital signs and monitoring blood pressure.
- Practice responding to acute and critical events in a controlled, safe environment.
- Evaluate various patient-care scenarios and administer proper treatment.
- Learn from mistakes and effectively correct them.
- Experience scenarios that focus on understanding team collaboration.
We encourage you to ask as many questions as possible to take full advantage of this supervised, experiential setting.
