COLUMBIA UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF NURSING LAUNCHED ITS NEWLY ADVANCED PEDIATRIC PATIENT SIMULATOR
As newly health advancement discoveries in the medical industry had already taken place, the nursing educational system is intensifying its learning innovation as well.
Just recently, the Columbia University School of Nursing launched a new improvement in its clinical simulation curriculum, known to be as “Pediatric HAL,” – the most world’s most advanced pediatric patient simulator.
The robotic technology is the first of its kind, simulating life-like emotions, responsive facial expressions, speech, and movement. It is wireless and tetherless, capable of nearly a dozen facial and verbal expressions.
Also, the new technology obtains a dynamic lung compliance, to emulate real lung functionality, enabling Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist students to practice intubation and delivering anesthesia. Moreover, the robot can simulate medical crises including lung collapse so students can practice emergency interventions like chest tube insertion.
“Our curriculum teaches students how to address critical health conditions so they can practice handling difficult situations that require strong communications skills, such as how to communicate a serious medical diagnosis to a young child. This robotic technology will help us to enhance our students’ clinical skills and help them become better prepared nurses and nurse practitioners, improving patient outcomes and safety through more accurate diagnosis and treatment.” Kellie Bryant, DNP, executive director of simulation and assistant professor at the Columbia University School of Nursing said in a statement.
Erudite Nursing Institute™ congratulates Columbia University School of Nursing in innovating their clinical simulation curriculum through having the world’s most advanced pediatric patient simulator. Truly, the institute encourages other learning institutes for nursing to innovate their medical simulation curriculum to allow their student nurses interact with the real world.
