Aylesbury Simulation Suites
Bucks New University has a long history of delivering award-winning nurse training from our Uxbridge Campus. Following this success, we are expanding our course portfolio, and are excited to be offering our BSc (Hons) Nursing (Adult) and BSc (Hons) Nursing (Children’s) from September 2019 at our Aylesbury Campus.
Wonder around our campus and check our impressive simulation suites below.
Simulation is an important aspect of our nursing and healthcare programmes. Students regularly spend time in these areas, to practice technical skills and use the newest technologies, in a safe and supportive environment. We use simulation manikins programmed to act like humans, and ‘moulage’ – the process of applying mock, often gorily realistic injuries for training purposes. We also engage service users in role-play sessions. This allows us to provide realistic scenarios where students can gain experience, exposure and feedback to boost their confidence before going out on placement.
Our simulation facilities at our Aylesbury Campus include:
- An adult simulation lab
- A pediatric simulation lab
- An assisted living lab
- Control room / viewing gallery
Our simulation suites are available to hire for training, filming and other events at both our Uxbridge and High Wycombe campuses.
We can offer bespoke courses created with our technicians. We have a team of technicians available to assist with scenarios and can offer moulage to assist with the authenticity of real life situations. Please note that if you are using any equipment you will require a technician on site. There is an additional cost for technicians and any consumables used.
We have six mobile CCTV / Scotia Medical Observation and Training System (SMOTS) cameras as well as fixed ceiling SMOTS cameras in most simulation rooms. Each camera comprises a 360-degree pan tilt zoom with a highly sensitive microphone and directional loudspeaker. All suites have TV displays which allow simultaneous observation of training and the output can be displayed in any of the skills suites or lecture theatres. We have a range of industry standard mid and high fidelity manikins and human patient simulators, scrub sinks and disposable clinical equipment.
All of our simulation rooms have infrared hearing loops, built-in projectors and screens with audio visual connections, as well as flip charts upon request. We also have equipment available to enable live audio/video streaming.
