Nursing Simulation Center

The OCU Kramer School of Nursing is pleased to announce the addition of a state-of-the-art Nursing Simulation Center opening for the Fall, 2017 semester.  The Meinders Nursing Simulation Center will feature several key components, to include seven fully equipped simulated hospital rooms, which will each have an anatomically correct simulation manikin ranging from newborn to adult.  These manikins will be used to simulate actual patient medical scenarios to prepare students for real-life situations, without risk of harming an actual human.  Each simulation manikin will be assigned medical histories, for students to administer critical treatments and medications, and the manikins will respond to the treatment provided by the students.  Click here for more information about the Meinders Nursing Simulation Center.

Donations are currently being accepted, and gifts of $100 or greater will be permanently recognized on a Donor Recognition Display located in the new center.  Secure online donations can be made at:


Thank you to our generous donors who have helped us to raise $1.1 million to date, to make the dream of the OCU Kramer School of Nursing Simulation Center a Reality.  The new center is scheduled to open Fall, 2017.
