Classrooms and Skills Labs
At our Reno Campus, you can gain a well-rounded education that will prepare you for a successful healthcare career. In addition to offering an accessible location, our campus provides you with an active learning classroom. Not only does this include hands-on exercises, but access to medical equipment as well as simulation labs.
At our Reno Campus, most classes are capped between 30-40 students. This allows your voice to be heard and sets you up for success. We also provide the following instructional technology in each classroom: You will benefit from the campus Intranet and Wi-Fi, overhead projectors, presentation projectors, and printers. Classroom utilization is carefully planned so you have access to classrooms and labs without waiting for delays.
Our simulation center contains high-fidelity simulators and sim-view technology, including a Medical Surgical Nursing Intensive Care Unit (ICU). It features two furnished patient rooms: one for Pediatrics with infant and child simulators, a crib, and a youth bed; another includes a birthing simulator, a bassinet for newborns, and a delivery bed.
These simulation rooms have a separate control room with one-way mirrors. Cameras are mounted in patient rooms and provide a panoramic view of the area. Other cameras focus on specific interactions between you—the student nurse—and the patient. Additional cameras hover over each medication cart. All of our simulation rooms have an attached debriefing room that allows up to eight students to observe and critique a classmate’s performance.
This is a strategic, communal space for you to study and collaborate with your classmates. Students have the opportunity to work together outside of the classroom in small group, peer-to-peer interactions. The room also allows for independent work in a relaxing environment.
