"Code Blue, Room HC 342F, Code Blue, Room 342F," a voice can be heard over the loud speaker. Nearby, nurses are discussing a patient. In earshot is Noelle, a 16-year mother to be experiencing high blood pressure. This is another day in the Simulation Suite.

It is in the Simulation Suite where nursing students learn to manage patient care including in a real life environment: the walls, the patients (most often computerized mannequins programmed with signs and symptoms of various diseases), the people, the special effects (moulage), the sounds, and even the smells, reflect reality.

In the seven bed ICU simulated hospital students are encouraged to make mistakes, and to learn from those mistakes, in a safe and supportive environment. In this way, they can build their confidence and competence. A simulation coordinator and simulation technician help students build confidence and competence.

Faculty and staff have written, directed and produced numerous scenarios and videoed simulations now used worldwide by other healthcare colleagues, professionals, colleges and universities. A simulation scenario library has been developed as a resource for educators. A listing of these simulations is available at:
