The Skills and Simulation Laboratories comprise the Clinical Learning Resource Center (CLRC). The CLRC provides learning experiences established by North Carolina Central University's Department of Nursing for students to develop psychomotor and critical thinking skills essential to Nursing. Our CLRC is referred to as EAGLE GENERAL HOSPITAL. It is a great place for students to learn and practice nursing skills in a “non-threatening” environment. Skills Lab serves as an extension of the clinical experience where students gain competency in designated skills. The Simulation Lab serves as a state-of-the-art clinical setting with two adult and one child HPS (Human Patient Simulators), to mimic the clinical setting. It is the responsibility of clinical faculty to ensure that each student receives adequate instruction and tutorials in order to gain competency in psychomotor and critical thinking skills. Skills and Simulation Resource Labs provide state of the art clinical settings. Eagle General Hospital is staffed with qualified lab instructors and a lab/simulation coordinator. The nursing Skills lab at NCCU provides a supportive and caring environment for students to learn, practice, and refine skills needed to function in a clinical setting.
Some of the nursing courses will require laboratory experiences, and in addition, OPEN LAB is available for students to practice. A schedule for OPEN LAB is generated for students at the beginning of each semester.
