Bivins Nursing Learning Center

Through a generous endowment from the Mary E. Bivins Foundation, the Laura and Joe Street School of Nursing offers a state-of-the-art learning center on the WTAMU campus.  The Bivins Nursing Learning Center (BNLC) houses classrooms, a computer laboratory, a simulated hospital environment with 10 beds, a primary care lab with 6 examination tables and related equipment and a simulation room.

Students have access to low and high fidelity mannequins that simulate real-life patients from across the life-span and real-life clinical experiences.  Students may practice "hands on" nursing skills using real patient care devices and equipment before they care for real patients.  In addition, the BNLC maintains a large number of video, audio and computer assisted learning resources that are available for students during regular hours of operation.
