RU Clinical Simulation Centers Opened to Solve Healthcare Needs

The RU Clinical Simulation Centers located at RU West Campus and the Roanoke Higher Education Center are the first of their kind in the area, offering a full spectrum of lab components ranging from high-fidelity simulation patients to standardized patient programs and virtual learning labs. The centers were developed to locally address a nationwide nursing shortage by providing six area nursing schools the opportunity to increase enrollment, retain faculty and decrease the competition for scarce clinical training sites. The centers are funded by the General Assembly.

Find out how the RU Clinical Simulation Centers are providing a solution to nursing training.
