Mission

We aspire to enhance patient safety through the provision of innovative, interactive, evidenced based and transformative educational experiences.

Vision

To be a leading skills/simulation centre with national and international  impact  and to pursue excellence in the provision of simulation-based  teaching, learning and research.

About The Centre

The School of Nursing and Midwifery Clinical Simulation Suite was officially launched on the 25th March 2013 by Professor Geraldine McCarthy, Emeritus Professor and former head of School. Each location is equipped with an extensive range of information technology and audio-visual equipment, thus equipped as one would expect to see in an acute hospital. Students are able to practice a variety of skills, including clinical assessments, medication administration, and communication with patients, see below for the virtual tour of our simulation  suite  which  consists of three high-fidelity simulation rooms which replicate a standard hospital high dependency unit environment.

The facility can be transformed to represent various locations of a hospital environment, equipped with an impressive array of high fidelity adult and child mannequins students can engage here  in realistic clinical scenarios without risk to patients. In this way they can be prepared to manage any number of acute clinical events they may encounter. This facility adds to the extensive existing clinical skills facilities within the school and was one of  the  first School of Nursing and Midwifery in Ireland to develop simulation facilities of this nature

Simulation Suite

The suite consists of three high-fidelity simulation rooms which replicate a standard hospital high dependency unit environment. Each location is equipped with an extensive range of information technology and audio-visual equipment. Students  from all programmes benefit from engaging  with  the simulation suite and often comment  on how realistic  it is.
