Lincoln Instructional Location
The Bryan College of Health Sciences is located on the Bryan Medical Center East site. The campus educational setting includes classrooms, conference rooms, simulation laboratories, skills laboratories, a computer laboratory and library facilities, as well as offices for faculty and staff.
Skills laboratories are located within the educational complex and are equipped with a variety of specialized equipment and mannequins for practicing psychomotor skills and patient care. The skills laboratories simulate a full range and complexity of care.
The Testing Center is available for makeup exams and semi-private room testing by appointment only.
The College also utilizes space at Bryan Medical Center West, located three miles west of the College. This location is home to the College’s Natural Science Laboratory, faculty offices, classrooms for Natural Science instruction, and small group work. The Natural Science Laboratory is the permanent home to two plastinated human body specimens, as well as human cadavers. These offer an important advancement in educating graduate and undergraduate students.
State-of-the-art, high-fidelity adult, birthing, and pediatric patient simulators are also located within the Simulation Center. Patient simulators respond physiologically to student interventions, such as medication administration, application of oxygen, and administration of anesthetic gases. They have realistic features, such as blinking eyes with pupils that react to light, a chest that rises and falls with respirations, palpable pulses, and various heart and lung sounds. Simulation experiences offer students the opportunity to apply their classroom knowledge to an environment where they can practice assessment, psychomotor, teamwork, critical thinking, and communication skills. There are currently six high-fidelity patient simulators with audio-visual capabilities.
Staff, faculty, and students have access to a free shuttle service that runs every thirty minutes between Bryan East and Bryan West.
Bryan College of Health Sciences Library organizes, maintains and provides access to an extensive collection of print and electronic journals, databases and multimedia material. These resources are utilized for coursework, patient care, clinical research and professional development. Library services include document delivery, research assistance program (RAP), curriculum integrated information competency skills, Library specific course guides, and educational opportunities in the form of hands-on workshops and course lectures. The Library web page organizes all the resources and services and provides remote access for off-campus users. The Library aims to provide authoritative current, high quality information that supports the curriculum and contributes to excellent patient care.
A 28-station computer laboratory is housed within the Library. Computers are equipped with software needed to complete course requirements, as well as a variety of review programs. Students can access their College email accounts, CampusVue Portal, and CANVAS accounts. In addition, eight computers on East Campus and three computers on West Campus are located in the student lounge for use outside Library hours.
Each classroom contains state-of-the-art technology, including a computer, LCD projector, document camera and projectable white board/wall. Two mobile carts with 30 laptops each are available for classroom instruction and testing. Technology to enhance learning at a distance is available in classrooms.
Hastings Instructional Location
The Hastings instructional location is located on the 3rd floor of a medical office building on the Mary Lanning Healthcare campus.The space encompasses a total of 17,000 square feet which includes 3 classrooms that comfortably seat 30 students each, a 4-bed nursing skills lab that accommodates sections of 8 students, a 2 bed simulation center, ample storage, 2 shared offices, 8 private offices, collaborative work spaces for students and staff, as well as student lounge areas. Classrooms are outfitted with faculty work stations including technology to display teaching materials, large white boards, and video conferencing. The nursing skills lab includes 4 patient bays mimicking hospital rooms with electric hospital beds and headwalls. The skills lab also includes all equipment needed to train student nurses in their introductory nursing courses such as scales, thermometers, low fidelity mannequins for tube/IV placement, etc. The simulation center includes 2 simulated hospital rooms with high fidelity mannequins for example an OB/GYN mannequin able to simulate labor and delivery scenarios and another able to simulate intensive care scenarios. These mannequins are also be able to be used for scenarios outside of those two specialities due to their multifunctionality. A control room is located between the two rooms that includes all AV equipment needed to operate the mannequins, record student participation in scenarios, and simulate patient experiences.
