The simulation facilities for the College of Nursing are located in two buildings on the University of Tennessee, Knoxville’s campus. The high fidelity HITS (Health Information Technology in Simulation) lab is a 7,600 square foot, state-of-the art simulation facility located in Temple Hall. The low fidelity Learning Lab, located in the College of Nursing, is a 2,400 square foot facility with 14 functioning acute care beds including wall units.
You will find simulation incorporated into the majority of courses within the undergraduate and masters programs. Simulation allows students the opportunity to practice newly acquired skills and handle patient/family situations not typically seen in the clinical setting. Simulation integration continues to expand as the field of healthcare grows and changes.
