Health Sciences Simulation Center
The College of Health and Human Services is committed to providing high-quality education and preparing the future health care workforce for New Hampshire and beyond. At the new state-of-the-art Health Sciences Simulation Center, students preparing for critical health fields – including nursing, occupational therapy, speech-language pathology and others - develop the skills they’ll use to change and save lives.
The Health Sciences Simulation Center provides enhanced educational opportunities for students pursuing nursing, as well as those majoring in occupational therapy, communication sciences and disorders, health sciences and other clinical areas.
The Center provides the next level of education, bringing students and faculty together in a high-tech environment, ensuring that students are maximally prepared and competent.
With major funding support from the State of New Hampshire, the University System and UNH, construction of the Health Sciences Simulation Center began in Fall 2020. The building is comprised of more than 20,000 square feet and house 35 offices, multiple learning classrooms and fully equipped simulation labs that mimic hospital, clinic, primary care and other health care settings. Students benefit from the experience of practicing in a clinical setting with real equipment and technology.
Common spaces allow students from across disciplines to discuss simulation cases and share learning from their respective fields. These interprofessional settings ensure students work together not just as future nurses, occupational therapists, rehabilitation specialists or speech-language pathologists, but as an integrated workforce dedicated to improving outcomes. They graduate poised to make a difference in the lives of others.
