Presentation College officially opened the Avera Simulation Center with a ribbon cutting ceremony May 10. Construction on the state-of-the-art Simulation Center began in January.

PC students will take their first classes in the amazing new facility beginning in the fall semester 2017.

The Avera Simulation Center will offer the most up-to-date technology available for healthcare training and education, setting PC apart from all other Nursing schools in our region. The Center features five rooms with hospital beds, specialized medical equipment, and interactive mannequins. The mannequins include an adult male, adult female, pregnant female, newborn baby, and a male child.

The rooms, designed to simulate Trauma, Critical Care/Intensive Care, Medical/Surgical, Pediatrics, and Obstetrics/Delivery hospital units. The Center also includes a Nurses’ call station, conference rooms and a control center. Students in the Nursing program, as well as those in various Allied Health fields of study, including Surgical Technology and Medical Assisting, will use the Center’s classrooms.

Events planned in the fall will provide opportunities for members of the community to tour the new facility and see a demonstration of this wonderful, new medical technology in action!
