Clinical Skills and Nursing Simulation Labs in Syracuse
As part of our hands-on curriculum, you will complete 225 hours of lab time at our UticaABSN site in Liverpool, New York. Under the guidance of faculty, you will learn and apply clinical skills in a controlled, risk-free environment.
During the nursing simulation labs, you will “treat” medical manikins in a variety of scenarios using real hospital equipment in a mock clinical setting. Scenario examples might include treating an elderly patient with a diabetic leg ulcer or working with a young adult with an acute kidney injury.
These labs consist of three main components:
- Instructors help students prepare for the clinical scenario.
- Students engage in the simulated clinical experience.
- Faculty debriefs students on their simulation performances.
Your nursing simulation labs are an opportunity for you to practice advanced skills without putting a patient at risk. Therefore, we urge you to ask as many questions as necessary to ensure you understand how to put nursing theory into professional practice.
