Eastern's Main Campus
Eastern University's Nursing Clinical Resource Laboratory provides a controlled environment where nursing students learn, practice, and refine the skills needed to function in the clinical setting. The lab is designed in such a way as to simulate the patient care setting and specialty practice areas. Systems models, simulators, manikins, videos, and CD-ROMs. Students will also assume the role of "patient" in activities such as range of motion exercises, positioning of the patient, transfers from bed to chair, wheelchair, stretcher, patient teaching exercises, physical assessment, etc. Interview skills and communication techniques are incorporated into the various patient-care scenarios. The Virtual Intravenous (VIV) Trainer provides students with the opportunity to learn intravenous skills and to practice within the virtual setting. Scenarios are chosen that will enhance the learning experience through decision making and prioritizing.
The Warner library also includes the most current and popular health and medical publications. The Nursing Department is located in the Gate House.
