Simulation Hospital at the School of Nursing and Health Studies

In Health Care Education Simulation Saves Lives

The Future of Nursing report calls for a revolution in the nursing profession in addressing the need for a larger and better-trained healthcare workforce; envisioning nurses as leaders in the healthcare arena and as integral members of healthcare teams, as a key strategy.  In a pioneering move, the University of Miami School of Nursing & Health Studies will open the nation’s first education-based Simulation Hospital. This revolutionary five-story, 39,000-square-foot facility will enable students and practitioners to be active rather than observational participants in patient care.

The facility will be the region’s foremost center for simulation immersion, and is designed to replicate a functioning outpatient clinic, hospital, and home environment, allowing for treatment of patients across the life-span continuum.
