is celebrating National Nursing Week (May 6 -12) with planned activities culminating in a ribbon cutting ceremony for its new fully-equipped, technologically advanced nursing simulation lab. Among its many features, the lab is equipped with life-like manikins called SimMan® that respond to CPR chest compressions, detects over 180 different medications, breathes unaided and spontaneously blinks the eyes.

The event will feature a presentation by KU-Augusta’s Director of Nursing Colleen Dutile and demonstrations by simulation experts from Laerdal, the maker of SimMan® and a leading manufacturer of medical training products and equipment. Event attendees will not only learn about the benefits of medical simulation technology, but also have the opportunity to participate in demonstrations.

There will also be a reception and a campus tour highlighting the new lab. Guests from area hospitals and the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs are among those expected to attend. The innovative lab supports the education and training of students enrolled in the school’s medical programs, including its newly added bachelor of science in nursing degree, which began in March.
