Sim Center Highlights: Atenas College has the first Simulation and Clinical Learning Center (SCLC) in Puerto Rico, which is laid out in a hospital setting to provide a comprehensive learning experience as close to a real environment as possible. This Simulated Hospital facilitates the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and attitudes to form a competent entry level professional nurse, thereby linking education, research and best practice. The center supports the creation of a variety of simulated clinical scenarios while focusing on patient safety and quality, and it also serves as a skills lab.
The simulation center is available for all students enrolled in our various health-related programs and therefore, many clinical scenarios are designed for interprofessional learning activities.
The simulation hospital is a ten thousand three hundred (10,300) square feet structure. Facilities are distributed as follows: a classroom, adult ICU that includes 4 high fidelity and 2 medium fidelity simulators; neonatal and pediatric ICU which includes 2 high fidelity infant simulators, 1 high fidelity child simulator, 1 medium fidelity child simulator; a maternity unit which includes 3 high fidelity obstetric simulators; nursery unit that includes 6 low fidelity newborn simulators and 1 high fidelity newborn simulator; a pediatric area that includes 1 low fidelity child simulator and 1 medium fidelity child simulator; isolation room which includes a low fidelity adult simulator; medical unit that includes 4 low fidelity adult simulators; a simulated pharmacy; a simulated operating room; a recording area; an emergency medical dispatch area; two (2) debriefing rooms; a physical therapy laboratory; an emergency medical laboratory; a respiratory therapy area; a reception area; student lockers area; computerized medication dispensing cart, and electronic medical record system.
