Center for Health Education with new sign.

The Center for Health Education

Equipped with sophisticated patient simulators ranging from maternity and newborn to pediatric and geriatric, the HCC SIMuCENTER will support nursing education throughout the continuum of patient care and be the core component of the new Center for Health Education. Human Patient Simulators enable nursing students to develop clinical decision-making proficiencies, refine technical skills, practice assessment techniques, and gain competency in recognizing and preventing common medical errors.

This center will significantly expand the college's capability to educate students in nursing and radiologic technology by 25-30%, and promote diversity in the student body through innovative linkages with the local health care industry. Specially designed classrooms and a state-of-the-art X-ray room will prepare students for their offsite clinical rotations by allowing them to train using the latest X-ray equipment and computer technology.
