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 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.

Ten computerized manikins provide a safe, controlled environment to practice hands on skills in a realistic simulation setting.
The NOELLE Maternal and Fetal Teaching System permits students to experience birthing simulation from the onset of labor to delivery and nursing care of mother after delivery.
The neonate manikin, complete with real-life isolette, allows the student to perform assessments and nursing care for neonate after simulation delivery.
Pediatric manikins provide students various simulation experiences including stations for: physical assessment, vital signs monitoring, specimen collection, tracheostomy care and suctioning, CPR,
intra-muscular injections, gavage and tube feeding.
Individualized support from lab staff assists students with perfecting clinical skills such as vital signs, physical assessment, injections, urinary catheters, IV insertions and medication administration.
Home health setting is available for identifying safety hazards and simulating home care scenarios.
Faculty and staff record student simulations. The videos are used to debrief students, noting communication techniques, critical thinking and competency of clinical skills.
Virtual heart, lung, and bowel sounds assist the learner in auscultation techniques and recognition of changes in patient conditions.
SMART pump technology is available for simulation and individual practice for safe administration of IV solutions.
Virtual IV experience provides scenario-based skills that include: venipuncture technique, critical thinking, immediate feedback, and opportunity to perfect skills.
Ten life-like training arms provide an effective tool for infusion of fluids, medication administration, and venipuncture skills.
Workstation with barcode reader provides multiple patient computerized medication records and automated dispensing of medications.
Classrooms provide opportunity for students to work on critical thinking and nursing skills facilitated by clinical and course instructors.
Wireless internet access is available throughout the Flasck Nursing Center.
SMART boards create technology that allows interactive, visual dimensions to course lectures and all small classroom activities.
Individualized tutoring is available to all nursing students for medication calculation, ECG interpretation, and clinical psychomotor skills.
A reference library offers current editions of course textbooks, nursing resource books, drug reference books, NCLEX review cards, and other related medical reading material.
