Members of Keene State College’s incoming class of nursing students were treated to a preview of the new simulation lab by Dr. Mary Ellen Fleeger, director of the nursing program. The $1.2 million dollar project to construct a state-of-the-art laboratory is currently under construction and will be completed when the new nursing class arrives in January 2014.

The nursing laboratory will feature the latest in nursing education technology. Included will be several mannequins that simulate hundreds of patient conditions. “This simulation technology is critical to the Keene State teaching philosophy of real-time learning for our students,” notes Dr. Fleeger. “In this high definition nursing simulation laboratory, our experienced faculty can provide an optimal learning experience for students looking to enter this desirable field.” According to Fleeger, students graduating from the nursing program have been hired for excellent positions in nursing practice with the majority of positions located in the region surrounding Keene State College.

“The nursing program is entering its third year,” states Fleeger. “We have a full complement of 48 students entering the program who will be the first to learn in this new lab. I want to thank the college’s past and current leadership for ensuring that our students have the best environment in which to learn.”
