Superior Simulation Center
The Superior Simulation Center is an innovative instructional program and learning laboratory providing challenging, immersive simulation training for nurses, paramedics, and other health care professionals at Lake Superior State University and in our region. Through the use of the latest medical simulation technologies, the Superior Simulation Center serves to facilitate knowledge acquisition, skill proficiency and patient care expertise for learners in the healthcare field.
Human patient simulators, ranging in age from infant to adult, are used to simulate real-life patient care experiences, including full-scale medical and emergency procedures. Using manikins in clinical simulations allows future and current health care providers to engage in patient care in a safe environment. The reality of manikin-based simulations allows for virtual feedback using computers that regulate the manikin’s actions. These life-like manikins simulate heart tones and other vital cues that when connected to monitors, provides real-time information to learners. By practicing true clinical skills in a safe and regulated environment, future healthcare providers gain competence and confidence in their clinical patient care skills.
Our mission is to provide an immersive learning environment using clinical simulation for the
enhancement of education and practice in the healthcare setting.
Our vision is to ensure growth in future healthcare professionals; that they are able to make
judgments and carry out safe, quality care based on critical thinking and research based
knowledge to facilitate disease prevention, health promotion, health maintenance, health
restoration and rehabilitation.
