The Baylor University Louise Herrington School of Nursing, Don A. and Ruth Buchholz Simulation Lab, also known as the Sim Center, is located on the 2nd floor of the LHSON Center for Research & Clinical Practice building at 3700 Worth Street in Dallas, Texas. Opened in 2008, the Sim Center consists of three main spaces: the Health Assessment Lab, the Skills Lab and the High-Fidelity Sim Lab.
The LHSON Sim Center operates under a Sim Facilitator model. At every scenario-based simulation activity, a sim facilitator (a specially trained simulation educator) works alongside the course/clinical faculty member who serves as the clinical content expert. We believe this approach produces the highest quality learning experience for our students.
