2 2 | L O U I S V I L L E . E D U UofL School of Nursing students soon will double their hands-on clinical simulation learning through a major lab renovation funded by two donations of $125,000 each, one from The Bufford Family Foundation and the other from Trilogy Health Services. The funds will allow a lab on the third floor of the School of Nursing to be transformed into a four-room simulation suite and home health care space called the Trilogy Health Services Simulation Lab. In addition, a separate observation room for instructors will be built. Construction will be completed in the fall. The school also will buy a fourth high-fidelity adult patient simulator that will be housed in the lab. The school has been restricted to using only two of its three adult simula- tors because of space constraints. The renovated lab will allow continuous use of all four adult simulators, doubling from 20 to 40 hours the time students spend as the caregiver during undergraduate education. Hands-on learning in patient simulation labs is essential to educating health care students, enabling them to sharpen complex skills in preparation to face real pa- tients. Simulators present numerous conditions that students respond to, including difficulty breathing, seizures and heart attacks.
