Simulation Innovation Center
Located in Justin Whiting Hall, the Jackson College Simulation Innovation Center is a state-of-the-art facility for students, faculty, health professionals and researchers dedicated to skill acquisition, patient safety and interprofessional collaboration.
JC-SIC is committed to providing excellence in simulation-based training through leadership, research, and interactive learner-centered experiences. Through innovative pedagogy and methodologies, JC-SIC will provide evidence-based and competency-based education promoting students’ cognitive, affective, and psychomotor skills.
We aspire, by providing challenging, immersive simulations, to deliver advanced and creative simulations with quality-driven opportunities to encourage exploration and promote the highest quality education and equitable outcomes to meet college-wide needs by:
- Creating an environment for the learner that supports knowledge integration, problem-solving, and clinical reasoning to enhance practice readiness.
- Create and design programs to address system needs that are research-based, prioritized, and responsive to the global environment.
- Develop trainers to grow educational programs, leadership, and critical thinking skills within our healthcare and industry systems.
- Prepare students by aligning with Jackson College’s statement of beliefs and values
Demonstrating what a real-life scenario can be like for healthcare professionals, Jackson College’s nursing and health sciences-related program faculty presented a live simulation using JC facilities that showed how to care for a critically ill patient.
