MOUNT OLIVE – On Monday, April 15, from 3 to 6 PM, the University of Mount Olive will open the doors of its Nursing Simulator Laboratory to the public.  The event will highlight the University’s newest cutting-edge, high-fidelity simulators purchased through grant funding from the Golden LEAF Foundation.

The new high-fidelity simulators offer students the opportunity to engage in hands-on learning experiences across the lifespan of patients. From pediatric care to geriatric care, the simulators replicate diverse patient scenarios, allowing students to hone their skills and build confidence in a safe and controlled setting.

Kristin Mozingo, Director of the Nursing Simulation Laboratory and Assistant Professor of Nursing, said, “As the nursing profession continues to evolve, educational institutions like the University of Mount Olive play a crucial role in shaping the next generation of healthcare leaders. With the introduction of the new high-fidelity simulators, the University remains at the forefront of nursing education, empowering students to excel in their future careers and make meaningful contributions to the field of healthcare.”

Open House attendees will have the opportunity to talk with current nursing students and faculty, see simulator demonstrations, and find out how the simulators are improving the educational nursing landscape. It will also be a great opportunity for anyone interested in the field of nursing to learn more about programming, start dates, and scholarship opportunities.

The UMO Simulator Laboratory is located on the second floor of the Communications Building.  For more information, email kmozingo@umo.edu.
