A day in the life of a third semester Nursing student utilizing the SIMS lab in order to practice their IV skills.  Each student needs to successfully place an IV catheter at least 5 times (while under instructor supervision), in order to be able to perform the skill in the hospital.  Our high tech SIM lab is fully equipped with simulators that gives them an experience as close to the real one.  These arms not only feel very real but they actually give you blood return which allows the instructor to evaluate their performance very accurately.
