Match 4 Manikins
On the third floor of the College of Health and Human Services, you'll find the labs where nursing students practice clinical skills and solve case scenarios using life-like representations of humans—Manikins.
Manikins are invaluable simulated learning tools that provide students in the Bronson School of Nursing with hands-on experience before they are assigned to real patients. They are used to perform a range of procedures from routine to exceptional—like a postpartum hemorrhage or a child's asthma attack.
As one may imagine, these Manikins experience heavy use while providing exceptional hands-on experience for students. In order to maintain effectiveness and meet expanded demands for use, the Bronson School of Nursing plans to replace two mid-fidelity (moderately complex in function) Manikins and add two more in the near future.
One may also imagine the cost for such valuable learning tools is significant. The Manikins also require accompanying computers and software. The total estimated cost to replace and add new Manikins is $25,000. That's where you can help.
The Alumni of Bronson School of Nursing (ABSON) is matching all gifts designated to the Match for Manikins campaign, currently in progress. Any gift made for the Manikins is eligible for a 1:1 Match. Any funds raised over $25,000 will be designated toward Manikin Maintenance.
The campaign is currently about a quarter of the way to reaching it's ultimate goal. To help Bronson School of Nursing students achieve invaluable, hands-on training, please follow the link below:
