Facilities

The offices of the Nursing Department and the Nursing Laboratory are located in Boyd Science Center on the quad in the center of the Muskingum University campus. Nursing is one of several sciences that make up the Science Division.

The offices of the Chair of the Department, the secretary, and the full time faculty all have offices in this building on the 4th floor.

Nursing theory classes are delivered on campus in a traditional style for the pre-licensure students. The RNs returning to complete their BSN degree complete their theory classes using distance technology.

Simulators

The Nursing Skills laboratory is located on the second floor of Boyd. The space is newly renovated and equiped with the most current technology for preparing our students for clinical practice. The laboratory is equiped with five hospital beds and the supporting technology for completing a comprehensive health assessment and the practice of nursing skills prior to clinical practice. This space also seats 20 students at conference tables for group work or discussion. Computer technology includes five networked computer stations, five VitalSim human simulators, SimMan, SimKid, and SimBaby simulators to serve the learning needs of a wide variety of students.

Courses that include a clinical practice component will have designated faculty and clinical agencies to complete that portion of the course. Agencies are carefully selected to meet the learning objectives of the courses as well as the practice standards expected by the program. The location and timing of clinical practice is determined by the faculty based on the objectives of the course.

As the demand and interest in nursing education programs has grown over the past 10 years or so, the demand for clinical placements with our practice partners has also grown. Multiple colleges and universities all use the same clinical practice settings. In order to accomodate the agencies needs as well as our own, students may be doing clinical practice at time other than Monday through Friday day time hours. Many agencies are requiring programs to use weekends and/or evening hours in order to place students in their facilities. In reality, this is part of preparation for the real world of health care delivery. We make every effort to schedule students for clinical practice during the week in the day. But, there will be variation from that practice in order to get quality clinical experiences to meet the objectives of the programs.
