Hands-On Learning at the LUSON Simulation Center

Broaden your nursing education and increase your skill performance through hands-on practice in a non-threatening, safe environment at the LUSON Simulation Center.

Your experience at the Simulation Center will help increase your confidence, competence, and critical thinking skills associated with the nursing process. Here, you’ll grow in the practice of bedside wisdom and ministry as well as leadership, and teamwork.

Our simulation program trains professional, safe, and effective nurse leaders who are taught from a biblical worldview to uphold ethical standards of good nursing practice. Our students also learn nursing as a global ministry of excellence and caring based on the Benner theoretical framework.
