Students looking to become nurses and other workers in the medical field have a new tool to learn at USI.
Students looking to become nurses and other workers in the medical field have a new tool to learn at USI.

The new clinical simulation lab looks just like part of a hospital. There's all the equipment students would use to help patients, and instructors set up scenarios to give students an idea of what life's really like for a nurse.

This week, students are learning about caring for people in critical condition and women who've just had a baby.

"One of the things that we do," said Dr. Ann White, "when we bring students in here. This is a clinical experience. They come in uniform. We have names for the patients. They talk to the patient by name, and we try to make it as real for them as we possibly can."

The clinic has been up and running for a few weeks, but many students are getting their first look at it soon.
