"Through our new state-of-the-art simulation center, we've been able to change the way our students experience, clinically, what is happening in the acute care setting. It's a very safe environment for them to learn. And with this generation of students, they are so tech-savvy; they grasp the technology and they want it. We have students who say, 'At what point in my curriculum do I get to come here and do this?"
