Welcome to the Red Deer College Nursing Simulation Lab which is currently home to iStan, a high-fidelity human patient simulator. This life-like mannequin will be playing the role of the patient in various healthcare scenarios designed to enhance student learning. However, at this point in time, simulation is not being used to evaluate learner competency levels. Rather, the purpose of using simulation is to give an opportunity to apply and integrate knowledge and skills acquired into a realistic scenario with an interactive patient. By watching this video and reviewing the accompanying information, the learner will be better prepared for any simulations that use this mannequin.
