The Skills Laboratories provide simulated settings where students practice skills taught during the course of the programs, prior to implementation in the clinical setting. They are utilized to support the learning that occurs both in the classroom and in the clinical setting. Students may practice both clinical skills and critical thinking to better prepare themselves to care for their patients. Students found damaging, destroying or stealing equipment and/or materials in college laboratories will be subject to disciplinary action, up to and including dismissal from the College.
