Nursing Lab: Flasck Nursing Center

The Flasck Nursing Center is located in St. Joseph Hall. Through a generous donation made by Dick and Dolly Flasck, the Flasck Nursing Center offers an environment conducive to optimal learning for nursing students. The Center is equipped with 13 beds assembled to simulate a hospital and community setting, 10 computerized manikins, state of the art equipment, and meeting rooms.

Simulation and Skills

Simulation allows students to put their knowledge into practice by working through realistic situations in a safe protected learning environment. Through the use of manikins and technology, students can assess and provide nursing interventions for specific symptoms, diseases, and conditions taken from real life scenarios.
