New training suite for Brighton nursing students
The University of Brighton has opened a newly-refurbished suite that provides nursing students with real-life scenarios to learn their skills.
The new £250,000clinical skills and simulation suite is based at the university’s facilities at Falmer.
Students using the suite are taught a range of skills to assess and care for the acutely ill and deteriorating patient, and can be monitored and given instructions from a nearby studio.
Professor Shirley Bach, head of the school of nursing and midwifery, said: “The state-of-the-art suite is among the best equipped in the country.”
She added: “’We have clinical suites on all teaching sites, in Hastings, Eastbourne and Falmer, and are about to spend a further £120,000 on a midwifery simulation suite at Eastbourne.”
