The newly appointed Holy Family College (formerly Silver Lake College) School of Nursing required a unique space, blending healthcare with education while providing hands-learning opportunities.
By renovating the second floor of the main academic building, students now have access to simulation rooms that emulate a typical hospital suite. These rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art high fidelity mannequins that enable nursing students to learn and apply skills in hands-on interaction. An extensive audio/visual system further aides student learning by recording simulation sessions. The new control room is outfitted with one-way glass, allowing instructors to privately evaluate students. The adjacent conference room facilitates post-simulation evaluation and playback.
The new space is supported by an open collaboration area, modeled after a healthcare reception area, serving as a central gathering space for all nursing and health sciences students.
