NYIT Vancouver Alumni Reception

Nursing Labs

Student learning is enhanced in two technologically advanced nursing laboratories located at the Old Westbury and Manhattan campuses. The nursing labs are designed to simulate various clinical settings. Students receive instruction, as well as practice and review clinical skills.

Both the Manhattan campus and the Old Westbury campus are equipped with Laerdal simulation manikins. Our adult simulators are programmed so students can experience realistic human responses. Students participate in scenario learning experiences in which programmable reactions such as vocal responses, heart rate variations, and respiratory changes prepare them for the acute clinical setting.

Education in specialty areas such as pediatrics, labor and delivery, as well as newborn assessment is aided by Laerdal's SimBaby and Birthing Simulator.

The nursing labs are set up with several stations that replicate hospital settings. These areas contain appropriate supplies that allow students to gain valuable practice in providing patient care. Nursing instructors are present at all times to assist students. The lab manager collaborates with all instructors so scenarios provided enhance didactic and clinical learning.
