Innovative Teaching Technology

The School has more than ten nursing laboratories, and several patient simulation systems that can display signs and symptoms of different illnesses and emergency conditions such as shock, sudden drop in blood pressure, etc. Students in these laboratories work out care plans in groups to address the simulated scenarios, enhancing their capacities in handling crises and stressful situations.
