HCTW news: New Jersey school unveils patient simulator

Staff Development Weekly: Insight on Evidence-Based Practice in Education, October 9, 2008

A New Jersey nursing school is welcoming new technology to help simulate real-life emergency care.

Warren County Community College in Washington, NJ, recently acquired "Warren," a simulator that can have seizures, heart attacks, and hemorrhages, among other scenarios. "Warren" uses the same type of medical monitoring equipment a real patient would require, allowing the scenarios to remain as realistic as possible.

Instructors can guide students through the different emergency situations with the technology that is also being used in other medical fields and in the military.
