Clinical Simulation Center
The College of Nursing and Health Professions at the University of Southern Indiana houses a Clinical Simulation Center for students pursuing careers in health care. The Clinical Simulation Center (CSC), which is designed to have the appearance and feel of a real hospital, is a realistic, safe environment in which students may practice newly-gained skills and knowledge before entering the clinical setting where they will encounter real patients.
The Clinical Simulation Center is located on the second floor of the Health Professions Center and is open Monday through Thursday, 8 am-8 pm Friday 8 am- 4:30 pm.
