Clinical Skill Lab

Rehman College of Nursing (RCN) skill laboratory is committed to providing a safe and effective learning environment for its students, focusing on enhancing their skills related to patient care. The skill lab at RCN is fully equipped with state-of-the-art facilities and follows standardized operating procedures (SOPs) to ensure students can practically perform their clinical objectives.

The skill lab at RCN comprises different areas designed to mimic real healthcare settings.It includes an emergency room (E/R) setup, a nursery, a general ward, and a semiprivate room. These areas allow students to simulate various healthcare scenarios and practice their skills in a controlled environment. In addition to practical exercises, the skill lab at RCN also offers visual activities utilising LED technology. This enables students to engage in interactive learning experiences and enhances their understanding of various concepts and procedures. Overall, RCN’s skill laboratory is dedicated to providing students with a comprehensive and hands-on learning experience. By offering a fully equipped facility, following SOPs, and incorporating visual activities, RCN aims to enhance students’ abilities and prepare them for real-world patient care scenarios.

Simulators and manikins mentioned

We have a range of simulators and manikins available for various training purposes. These include:

  • Baby simulator for basic nursing procedures: This simulator is designed to replicate the features and characteristics of a newborn baby. It allows trainees to practice basic nursing procedures, such as bathing, diaper changing, and feeding, in a realistic and safe environment.

  • CPR training manikin for adults: Our CPR training manikin is specifically designed to provide realistic training in cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR) techniques for adult patients. It features anatomical landmarks and feedback mechanisms to help trainees learn and improve their CPR skills effectively.

  • Spongy-type baby simulator: The spongy-type baby simulator is a specialized manikin with a soft and flexible body structure. It mimics the feel and texture of a real baby, making it ideal for practicing delicate procedures like handling and positioning infants with care.

  • Tracheostomy care manikin: This manikin is designed to simulate a patient with a tracheostomy, providing hands-on training for healthcare professionals on tracheostomy care procedures. Trainees can practice cleaning, suctioning, and changing the tracheostomy tube in a safe and controlled environment.

  • Colostomy care manikin: The colostomy care manikin allows healthcare professionals to practice essential skills related to colostomy care. It simulates the presence of a colostomy and provides a realistic platform for practicing bag changes, cleaning the stoma, and maintaining proper hygiene.
  • Childcare manikin: The childcare manikin is designed to simulate a young child and provides a comprehensive training experience for individuals involved in childcare. It allows trainees to practice various aspects of childcare, including feeding, burping, dressing, and basic medical procedures.
  • Maternal and fetal birth torso: The maternal and fetal birth torso is a childbirth skills simulator that replicates the anatomy and physiology of a pregnant woman’s torso. It allows healthcare professionals and trainees to practice essential skills for childbirth, including labor and delivery scenarios, fetal monitoring, and emergency procedures.

In addition to these examples, we have a wide range of simulators and manikins available to cater to various medical training needs. These training tools provide a safe and realistic environment for healthcare professionals to develop and refine their skills before working with real patients.
