Hospital like lab to benefit nursing students

ALBANY, GA (WALB) - Albany Tech nursing students can now learn in a hospital-like environment. A practical nursing lab opened on the campus Tuesday. The lab has four regular patient rooms, a birthing bed and an intensive care room.

Students already do clinicals at local hospitals, but instructors want the learning environment to look just like what they'll experience there. Dr. Dorothy Garner said, "What we did was simulate what we saw at Phoebe Putney and thought this would give us a chance to practice in a setting that is similar to where the students go."

The lab renovations cost $350,000 which were paid with state funds and tuition fees. Students began using the lab Tuesday with the start of Summer Quarter.
