About the Simulation Centers

As technology advances, so must the tools used to educate our students. Simulation technology offers new methods that can enrich the student’s understanding of their discipline and ability to think critically. Psychomotor, cognitive and affective learning are utilized through the simulation experience.

In preparation for these advancements, CCRI has established simulation labs on all of the college’s campuses to the health sciences student‘s educational needs. The main location is in Lincoln at the Flanagan campus. The Simulation Center offers a wide variety of simulation manikins; our high fidelity mannequins include SimMan and the new SimMan3G. We have an assortment of low fidelity manikins; the VitalSim Family is comprised of an adult male, adult female, pediatric and baby manikins.  [Read More]
