Mobile Simulation Center

St. John's College Mobile Simulation UnitSt. John's College of Nursing received a grant in December 2018 from the Renaissance Quality Insurance, Ltd. for a mobile simulation unit to improve the quality of nursing education and impact the quality and safety of nursing care in the Central and Southern Illinois Division hospitals and the Wisconsin Division hospitals.

St. John's College has affiliations with community colleges in the central and southern parts of the state of Illinois. College administration noticed a lack of high fidelity manikins and other health care equipment in the nursing labs at the community colleges of nursing, while visiting to formalize academic partnerships. We want to take our simulation center on the road to these nursing colleges to educate nurses through simulation for safe care. The mobile unit is being equipped with high fidelity manikins and associated medical equipment and will be ready for operation on June 1, 2019.

If you wish to inquire about utilizing the mobile simulation center please contact Gregg Kater, the Simulation Center Coordinator at 217.525.5628 or email
