In Spring 2017, SimMom came to the UAPB Department of Nursing Simulation Lab ready for delivery! The 12 junior nursing students were recipient of this new ‘birthing mom’ training simulator. Prior to the arrival of SimMom, students were assigned Labor and Delivery rotations without a guarantee they would actively participate in an actual delivery. With access to SimMom, those 12 current senior nursing students and future nursing students will be guaranteed to have this critical experience in their labor and delivery rotation.
The Nursing Department skills lab SimMom and Hospital Birthing Bed were paid for in total by funding from the U.S. Department of Education, Office of Postsecondary Education, Institutional Services Program, Title III Part B Strengthening Historically Black Colleges & Universities Program or Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act (SAFRA).
