In August, 2011 Chabot opened a state-of-the-art Simulation Lab on the Hayward campus. "Active Learning is the future of nursing education," said Chabot Nursing Program Director Connie Telles, DNP, RNC-OB. Using the latest teaching methods has been a catalyst for success in the college's nursing program. Currently, the Simulation Lab is populated with a busy family of four: Noelle the birthing manikin, Baby Hal, 5-year-old-Hal, and Simulation Man Essential (Sim Man). While nursing student perform learning scenarios, instructors in a control room observe from behind a two-way mirror, using computers to remotely manipulate the activity and vital signs of the manikins The exercises require role play and reflect the drama and crisis scenarios in any hospital, including labor and delivery.
