Nursing Assessment Meets Technology


I work at an institution that received a federal grant to start up a simulation lab. This lab has three manikins that are very lifelike. One is an obstetric manikin and can simulate vaginal births. One is pediatric. The last manikin is an adult and we have sent over 1000 nurses thru this lab this year. We do ACLS scenarios and mock Code Blue. The program can be written to do anything. You can hear the lung fields and heart. When you feel the pedal area, you can even feel a pedal pulse. It is an awesome way to train students and new graduates as well as the experienced nurses.
