NKU’s Center for Simulation Education uses technology and thoughtfully designed spaces to create a safe learning environment where students can practice real-life healthcare situations.  The center features nine inpatient simulation rooms including an operating room, and a multi-bed critical care room.  In addition, the center has a simulated home health environment, and eight examination rooms simulating an outpatient health environment.  The simulation spaces, as described below, allow for exploration and learner-centered education.
