Support the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing this Give Day!
Long before commercial pilots get in a real cockpit, they log countless hours in flight simulators. Likewise, our students develop life-saving skills in high-tech simulations before they interact with patients.
“Clinical simulations are very exciting and make me feel more confident,” says Hyatt Niazi, ’17, a family nurse practitioner student at the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis. “After running the simulation, in the back of my brain, I think I’ve already experienced it and know what’s coming up next. If you know what’s coming up next, you can save lives.”
Your gift to the Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing provides hands-on, real-life experiences that give our students the skills they need before they interact with and treat patients. Our students learn in a state-of-the-art simulation hospital ward, primary care clinic and one-bedroom apartment. Here students can learn vital skills in a controlled setting. They practice starting IV lines, performing CPR and learning to react to a high-tech mannequin’s changing symptoms.
“It’s better of a base for education going out in the clinic,” said Abby Imboden, ’17, a physician assistant student. “Getting to see it in real time makes it a smoother transition when you have to do it for real.”
Your gift of support to our Simulation Technology Fund helps our students gain the skills and confidence they need to provide the best care and save lives. Join us by investing in how our students learn today.
