RUTHERFORD, NJ – FEBRUARY 2024 – Felician University's Barbara J. Toscano Nursing Resource and Simulation Center received the latest in-patient simulation technology earlier this month with the delivery of unique and specialized equipment.
An Anatomage table, an Augmented Reality System and realistic suture arms were delivered to this state-of-the-art nursing education facility located on the Rutherford campus. The Nursing Resource Simulation Center provides Felician students in the School of Nursing an opportunity to prepare for their clinical experiences with real life simulation and guidance from the Center's professional nursing staff.
The Anatomage table allows students to learn about the anatomy and physiology of the human body through 3D visualizations. With the Augmented Reality System, students are able to interact with their patients in a one-on-one setting, preparing them for their future careers. The suture arms provide students with a realistic feel for subcutaneous tissue, allowing them to practice good techniques.
The new equipment is made possible through a New Jersey State Equipment Leasing Fund Grant, which was awarded to Felician University in 2023. The School of Nursing remains proud of its stellar reputation and position, educating the highly skilled workforce ready nurses of the future. Through baccalaureate and master’s degree programs, students become resilient leaders, passionate about their values and advocacy role in caring for patients, families, and communities with the complex global healthcare environment.
