Academics | Student Success

The School of Nursing recently introduced a new birthing simulator to train nursing students in caring for women as they go through the stages of labor. It can simulate a wide range of birthing complications, as well as normal birthing scenarios.

The simulator was purchased through fundraising efforts by the Curry College Student Nurses Association (CCSNA) and matched financial support by Dr. Desirée Hensel, Dean of the School of Nursing. With Curry's purchase, the manufacturer donated an additional birthing simulator to a low-resource country through the Helping Mothers Survive initiative, which helps to train birthing attendants in developing countries and prevent maternal deaths.
