Looks like the wonderful team from my old stomping grounds, the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas, have put together an updated orientation video for new learners to one of the adult simulation lab spaces. The tour was provided by Simulation Program Coordinator Rowena Saba and produced by Simulation Technology Specialist Jonathan Sturak. The CSCLV, which is a partnership of Nevada System of Higher Education schools including University of Nevada: Las Vegas School of Nursing, University of Nevada School of Medicine, and Nevada State College School of Nursing recently celebrated its 5-year anniversary! I hear the 31,000 sq.ft. facility is available to host events and is also providing simulation-based training activities for educators!
Such orientations are great ways to introduce the space to visual or auditory learners before they receive their physical orientation. This provides learners with additional opportunities to orient themselves to the process of simulation either remotely or before entering the lab — so that when simulation starts — they spend less time trying to remember where the oxygen masks are and more time focusing on patient care.
The CSCLV has produced many of such wonderful orientations and promotional videos for a variety of spaces and programs which have already been viewed over 110,000 times! Think about the cost savings of one-time productions vs providing all those tours with staff time! Learn more by reading our post on “Why Video Production Saves Your Sim Program Time & Money“.
