Geriatric Clinical Simulation at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill

Welcome to the Center for Geriatric Clinical Simulation at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill—a service of the UNC School of Nursing. The purpose of the Center is to disseminate innovative, evidence-based clinical simulations involving older adults, focusing on the educational needs of registered nurses, licensed practical nurses and nursing assistants. Simulations cover scenarios ranging from acute exacerbations of chronic conditions to sentinel events, such as falls. Select clinical simulations incorporate interdisciplinary content that facilitates communication between nurses and physicians.

A Collection of Resources

The Center provides educational resources to supplement participation in clinical simulation exercises, as well as opportunities for further self-directed study. The Center for Geriatric Clinical Simulation is dedicated to improving the geriatric nursing knowledge and competencies of nursing staff employed in a wide range of geriatric health care settings.
