University of Nevada, Las Vegas and Nevada State College nursing students share 10 such mannequins at the Clinical Simulation Center of Las Vegas on Shadow Lane.

The 32,000-square-foot center has five simulation labs, standardized patient rooms, a hospital ward and a surgery skills hall. The facility is also used by University of Nevada School of Medicine doctors in training.
Simulation labs are used in nursing schools to give students realistic experience in controlled settings. The labs look like hospital rooms and mannequins serve as patients. The high-tech mannequins can simulate speech, breathing, blood pressure, heart rate and other functions.
