Northwest Nazarene University’s School of Nursing, in conjunction with CAE Healthcare (formerly METI), will host a day-long Simulation Expo in the Thomas Family Health and Science building Friday, March 9, from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m..
NNU’s family of human-patient METI simulators will be available for the latest high-fidelity simulations and demonstrations led by CAE/METI representatives as well as NNU nursing professors. Individuals working in all aspects of the medical field (from EMT’s to emergency room doctors) are encouraged to participate in the simulation exercises, which will mimic human medical scenarios such as trauma, heart attack, drug overdose and bioterrorism effects.
Simulation exercises are enacted to help prepare health professionals to succeed clinically and to enhance critical-thinking skills. Informative sessions will include helping the novice medical personnel hit the ground running. A debriefing will take place at the end of the day for questions on who, what, where, when and how a simulation could or should be done.
