As you travel through the Manjushree Institute of Nursing Science programs, you will spend time in each semester at Nursing Skill Lab, where you are learning new skills, reviewing previously learned skills, or being evaluated in preparation of clinical research. Simulation activities will be a key component of all these elements, whether it is using a simple task trainer, a complex full bodied manikin or a peer. Critical thinking is encouraged by incorporating the rationale for what you are learning as well as understanding the nursing assessments and responsibilities that accompany these skills. Evaluation is a continuous process utilizing peer evaluations, course skills testing and clinical experiences. The Nursing Skills Lab faculty and staff collaborate with the course faculty to coordinate nursing theory and clinical labs.
