Nurse educators from SOMC and SSU hosted an open house for leaders in the medical and education communities Feb. 14, demonstrating the sophisticated mannequins’ capabilities to present the symptoms and conditions nurses will encounter in real health care situations. The hospital and university partnered to bring the advanced teaching approches in the new lab, the only one of its kind in the area.
