O’Neill Family Foundation Clinical Simulation Center

The O’Neill Family Foundation Clinical Simulation Center is an advanced learning and research facility within the School of Nursing.

About the Center

The O’Neill Family Foundation Clinical Simulation Center is a dynamic learning environment created through the generosity of Georgetown alumni Timothy O’Neill (L’77) and Linda O’Neill (NHS’77).

Student Outcomes

Simulation allows students within Georgetown’s undergraduate and graduate nursing programs to apply and hone theory in a non-threatening environment while providing preparation for students who will enter real-life clinical situations.

This remarkable teaching tool allows students to get clinical training and confidence in advanced diagnostic and treatment skills in preparation for treating actual patients.

In addition to activities within the center, staff members work alongside faculty members to create related experiential learning opportunities for nursing students, such as a poverty simulation exercise as a part of public health nursing.
