Monroe College Opens Human Patient Simulation Center

On Dec. 7, Monroe College President Stephen Jerome and other dignitaries cut the ribbon on the Human Patient Simulation Center, which features two lifelike mannequins. One is a male, called 3G SimMan, that can be programmed to exhibit bodily functions such as sweating, bleeding, crying and spiking a fever. The female mannequin is a fully functional birthing simulator that goes through the stages of labor and gives birth. Monroe is the first college in the nation to operate the full-body pregnancy simulator in an educational setting.

“Our goal is to offer the students the opportunity to become first-rate nurses so that patients in hospitals will know they’re receiving the best care from Monroe graduates,” Jerome said. “This brilliantly designed center with its high-tech mannequins helps to make that goal a reality.”

The ceremony included a full demonstration of the two mannequins including a distress condition on the male mannequin that students had to diagnose and treat, and a birthing from the female pregnancy simulator.
