The Simulation Center at Tallahassee Community College
Welcome to Tallahassee Community College’s Simulation Center. We are a 5,000 square foot facility used for training future and current healthcare professionals. The Simulation Center is located on the second (main) floor of Ghazvini Center for Healthcare Education.
The Center has a total of six simulation rooms, two control rooms, one skills lab, three HeartCode® rooms, and two debriefing rooms. The simulation suites are designed as hospital rooms and provide real-life simulated experiences for the students in the Nursing, Emergency Medical Services, Respiratory Care, Radiologic Technology, and Dental programs. A variety of simulators are available to students. Each simulator is unique and presents different features that can be used when training our students on specific skills.
The Simulation Center currently has 14 adult, three pediatric, two infants, one newborn, and one maternal simulator. These simulators allow staff to present different scenarios to students with the purpose of improving patient safety. In conjunction with faculty, the Simulation Center staff develops simulations that incorporate the use of team work, communication, and psychomotor skills.
In addition to the patient simulators, TCC’s Simulation Center also has four Virtual IV trainers and four complete HeartCode® systems that allow students to obtain ACLS and BLS certification for Healthcare providers.
