Patient Care Units

Rooms: H108 and H112


The Patient Care Units are available to all Health and Human Services students.

The Patient Care Units are two 8 bed simulated Medical/Surgical hospital units. This space provides students a safe environment for a variety of simulated clinical situations which enhance and support clinical skill acquisition and development of clinical reasoning and judgment. These simulated experiences may be done by individual departments (Nursing, Occupational Therapy, Social Work, Kinesiology, Athletic Training, and Health Sciences, Medical Laboratory Sciences) or as interprofessional teams.
