The Nursing Resource Center features learning laboratories that simulate hospital and clinical settings. A clinical coordinator provides supervision as students gain invaluable practice. One laboratory is set up with all appropriate hospital supplies and equipment, including advanced patient care manikin and a nurse station. The second laboratory is equipped with nursing tools for complete assessment practice. The computer laboratory offers online learning and practice programs.

Adelphi School of Nursing
Our newest labs feature two Laerdal SimMan manikins. These human simulators now known as Simuwell Jackson and Adelphi Smith can be programmed to have realistic human responses. Anything from vocal reactions to irregular heart rhythms can be generated. Each is complete with their own state of the art lab offering advanced technology in a simulated setting complete with an emergency medical cart, respirator, infusion, AEDs, patient monitor, closed circuit screens and scenario learning experiences in preparation for actual clinical care settings.

Mr. Simuwell Jackson and the Stars of the Nursing Lab
By Deborah Ambrosio, clinical assistant professor in the School of Nursing
The healthcare arena is constantly evolving. Students today are expected to be prepared to function in a more sophisticated complex health care environment, one that has been transformed by dramatic technological advances.
Adelphi’s Nursing Lab (Sim Lab) offers students an atmosphere in which they can overcome their fears, deliver care, and make sound clinical judgments by working with our high fidelity simulator, Mr. Simuwell Jackson, alias Mr. Sim. The universal computerized human simulator has numerous features including personality, allowing the students to encounter what may happen in a real life situation. With the click of the mouse, instructors can direct Mr. Sim to demonstrate tracheostomy care, nasogastric tube insertion, cardiac arrhythmias, respiratory distress, and other medical conditions. He has vital signs (pulse, blood pressure, respiration) as well as the ability to speak and cough. Students hone their assessment skills by listening to his lungs, heart, and bowel sounds to hear normal and adventitious sounds. They play important roles in providing his care and developing a rapport with him. In this active learning process, students develop sound clinical judgment.
