Nursing Facilities

Methodist University established its Professional Nursing Studies Program in 2010 in response to a growing demand for highly trained nursing professionals. This program is a unique integration of the best use of hands-on learning and state-of-the-art simulation technology, with the goal of producing graduates with outstanding nursing skills and leadership in the face of a nationwide nursing shortage.

The dedication ceremony for the Professional Nursing Studies Building took place in December, 2012. The star feature of the 10,000 square foot facility is the MU General Simulation Hospital. The Hospital is comprised of an admitting/discharge area; pharmacy; a CEO/CNO office; case conference room; skills lab; two Nurses stations; four private hospital rooms including critical care, trauma, med/surg and labor and delivery rooms; a pediatric ward; nursery; and a triage suite. Within the hospital, students provide care to simulated patients - an infant, a six-year old boy, an expectant mother, and three adult males, creating the real life scenario of managing multiple patients simultaneously. The "patients" are life-sized, computerized manikins that can speak and breathe, have heart and lung sounds, and can progress through a multitude of medical states from birth to death.

The entire Hospital is connected by forty-one ceiling-mounted 360 and zoom cameras for audiovisual playback teaching/learning opportunities with live observation capability from any computer in the building. This system integrates simulators, skills trainers, and standardized patient programs to help create, deliver, asses, evaluate, and manage all aspects of learning.
