Laboratory Learning

Before going to a clinical site to do hands-on experience, nursing students learn in our updated nursing lab, where they demonstrate psycho motor procedural skills under supervision.

Examples of step-by-step lab instruction

  • Administration of oral and topical medications
  • Dressing change
  • Indwelling catheterization and irrigation
  • Isolation technique
  • Physical examination
  • Tracheostomy care
  • Changing an IV bottle or bag, care of central lines
  • Gastrointestinal intubation, irrigation, and removal

What you’ll gain from our clinical lab

EMU nursing students develop critical thinking and decision-making skills through simulation of clinical scenarios in the laboratory. You’ll work with seasoned educators and nurses with years of experience in the field. Simulated situations in our lab classroom allow you to assess, provide care and evaluate outcomes in a safe environment.
