Emily speaks about how, at D'Youville, students are able to be exposed to a wider range of scenarios than they would necessarily be able to see in the clinical setting. In simulation, we can prepare students, so they are confident once they reach the clinical setting.

Governor Kathy Hochul signed legislation (A3076-A/S447-C) into law, strengthening New York’s health care workforce by permitting nursing students to complete up to one third of their clinical training through simulation experiences. Overseen by the New York State Education Department, simulation training gives students hands-on experience in clinical environments while allowing nursing education programs to offer more options for clinical education. As New York currently faces a nursing shortage, expanding simulation experiences can help expedite training and deliver an influx of nurses where they are needed most.
