Gifts of more than $1 million will enable the University of Hawaiʻi at Mānoa’s School of Nursing and Dental Hygiene to create the Hawaiʻi Nursing Simulation Center.

Plans call for a 7,000-square-foot facility in Webster Hall featuring realistic practice settings ranging from surgical and critical care hospital units to clinical settings to home care. It will be equipped with human patient simulators, bedside computers, digitalized video recording capacity and interactive instructional software.

The center will serve all islands and link the existing simulation labs of the UH Statewide Nursing Consortium and hospitals throughout the state.

Funding support was provided by the Hawai’i Medical Services Association Foundation, The Queen’s Medical Center, Hawaiʻi Pacific Health and Kaiser Permanente.
