College of Nursing
What we offer
Helen Glass Centre for Nursing
Located on the Fort Garry campus, the facility features hospital and community simulation laboratories, distance education classrooms, computer labs and video-equipped assessment rooms.
Students have the chance to develop their critical thinking and skills in a risk-free environment designed to reflect real-life settings and situations. Our interactive simulation rooms include a pediatric unit, two maternity units, an adult unit, as well as a multipurpose space. We have the ability to make the simulation high fidelity by using manikins or standardized patients, or low fidelity using task trainers and role playing.
Our skills lab gives students the chance to understand the patient experience, practice skills in a safe environment and gain experience required for interdisciplinary teamwork.
The interactive CAregiver Communication Research Environment (CAre) Lab at the Grace General Hospital focuses on enhancing students’ and clinicians’ empathic communication skills with patients, families and caregivers.
Dr. Margaret Elder Hart Heritage Room
This commemorative space is named in honour of Dr. Margaret Elder Hart, past director of the UM School of Nursing (1948-1972). It bears her name in recognition of her contribution to nursing education and her lifelong interest in nursing history.
