(September 4, 2019)— The Nursing Program at Hagerstown Community College recently received an award from The Maryland Clinical Simulation Resource Consortium (MCSRC). The total amount of the award was $45,269. The items received included three Laerdal Nursing Kelly Simulators, one Laerdal Nursing Kid, LifePak 12 Defibrillator, and Cardionics Sam3G Auscultation Trainer.

“This reward is greatly appreciated as it presents an opportunity for students to experience real world settings in a controlled and safe environment,” said Matt Dorsey, HCC nursing lab coordinator. “Students will utilize the equipment to practice various skills and bridge classroom learning with their clinical experiences.”

The MCSRC is a statewide funding initiative authorized under the auspices of the Nurse Support Program II (NSP II) and jointly approved by the Health Services Cost Review Commission (MHEC). This program is designed to increase the quality and quantity of simulation used in nursing education.
