SCC Nursing and Health Technologies Simulation Lab Enhancement Project

Organization:
Southeastern Community College
Amount:
$500,000.00
Program Area:
Community-Based Grants Initiative
County of Applicant:
Columbus
Description:

This grant will help Southeastern Community College (SCC): (1) create opportunities for its nursing students to mitigate errors and improve critical thinking and problem-solving skills; (2) offer experiences caring for patients in obstetrics, pediatrics, and high acuity areas; and (3) and provide realistic simulations of patient scenarios students may not experience in their clinical field rotations. SCC believes that increased student training in simulation labs will help improve its student retention rate to at least 50%, increase its program completion rate, and raise the licensure exam pass rate to at least 85%. The college has also implemented other strategies to support retention. The college administration supports the nursing and health technologies programs and is committed to sustaining the simulation lab and its equipment. Golden LEAF funds will be used for equipment and supplies.
