Clinical Simulation Lab
Welcome to the Loyola University of Chicago Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing Clinical Simulation Learning Laboratory (CSLL). The lab is located at the Lakeshore campus in Mundelein Center, room 317. The multifunctional lab provides the student with the opportunity for learning and risk-free practice throughout the nursing program.
The CSLL is designed to simulate the various clinical settings and provide the undergraduate student opportunities to learn and enhance their technical, communication, critical thinking, and decision making skills.This is accomplished through the use of clinical case scenarios, faculty guidance and student practice.
The CSLL is equipped with state of the art resources including high fidelity simulators (adult, obstetric and pediatric), virtual reality simulators, computer lab, 8 hospital bays and 3 simulation suites.
It is an exciting time at Marcella Niehoff School of Nursing, as we develop the new School of Nursing and the new Multidisciplinary Simulation Center to be located at the Maywood campus. This will combine our Undergraduate, Graduate, and School of Medicine simulation programs.
