About the College
Fairmont State University is on the front lines of training qualified students for the health care industry. And at no time in our history have those nurses and health care industry professionals been more important to our communities and our nation. A contribution to the College of Nursing will be put to use immediately by providing scholarships to entice students to stay in school and continue their education, by providing discretionary funds to purchase needed equipment and by helping to hire more adjuncts to help increase the number of students we can train.
Graduates of Fairmont’s program have consistently exceeded state passing rates on the National Council Licensure Examination and are in great demand by employers. Our nursing faculty are dedicated and committed to excellence in innovation in teaching, scholarship, and service.
Now is the time. Support our College of Nursing program. These are the graduates you want to provide your health care in the coming years. Our nursing students, now more than ever, are worth your investment.
High-fidelity patient simulators are life-like manikins that are programmed to react physiologically as a real human would. These simulators are used to create high-risk scenarios to allow learners to practice, develop, and refine nursing skills and clinical reasoning without the risk of harming a real person. In the hospital setting, if these situations would arise, the learners would assume an observational role while the patient is stabilized; however, in the simulation lab, the learners are placed in the role of the registered nurse and must assess and analyze the patient, review lab and diagnostic study reports, and vital signs while they communicate with other healthcare team members, implement appropriate interventions, and evaluate the patient’s condition throughout the scenario.
