Nurses' Learning Lab
The College of Nursing and Health Sciences' Nurses Learning Lab is located in 237/239/242 Rowell building. There are beds, exam tables, a demonstration exam table, a private exam room, and a medication room. An additional room houses Sim–Man, Sim–Baby, Nursing Anne, and self–study modules. A conference room and audio visual equipment round out this high–tech learning facility.

The Nursing Learning Lab provides students with an environment for learning psychomotor and physical assessment skills before they provide direct patient care. The opportunity to use equipment and techniques in a non-threatening environment which simulates the clinical setting helps to develop skills. RN and graduate students also use the lab to learn advanced assessment skills. In addition to instructional time in the lab, the facilities are open to students for skill review and practice.

The Department of Nursing’s main office, faculty offices, and the Learning Lab are located on the second floor of the Rowell Building. The department is located close to the Dana Medical Library and Fletcher Allen Health Care, the primary clinical site for undergraduate nursing students.
