Clinical Skill Development

Students have the opportunity to practice skills in a state-of-the-art simulation lab which has designated nurse practitioner rooms. Located on the second floor of Founders Hall, the rooms are designed to replicate an outpatient clinic setting with exam rooms where students have the opportunity to strengthen their skills in history taking, assessing, diagnosing and treating clients.
