Simulated Patients

High Fidelity Patient Simulators

Our patient simulators are programmed to mimic human responses and to offer a variety of different learning opportunities. Our adult simulators offer a drug recognition system, difficult airway functions, CPR analysis, and the ability to bleed, cry and give birth. ISIC’s neonatal and pediatric simulators realistically represent a 40-week gestation baby and a 5-year-old with many features, such as motion, skin color changes, a realistic airway, and vocal sounds.

Standardized Patients

Standardized patients are actors that have been trained to portray patients with specific signs and symptoms of real medical and psychosocial conditions.

Virtual Patients

Our state-of-the-art virtual reality program is an immersive virtual reality platform that will advance your clinical decision making and communication skills. The technology allows nursing students to practice treating patients in a simulated, virtual environment, enhancing skills like clinical reasoning, decision making, and patient/team communication. This additional opportunity for structured practice results in increased learner competence and confidence in managing complex care.

Task Trainers

Task trainers allow students to safely practice specific psychomotor skills including intubation, starting an I.V., inserting an indwelling catheter, and ultrasound guided epidural/spinal catheter placement.

Real Life Clinical Experience Without the Real Life Risk

Watch how UNE health professions students utilize the simulation lab to prepare for high stress, unexpected circumstances that may occur in their hospital and emergency room work.
