Clinical Simulation Learning Center
The Clinical Simulation Learning Center is a unique educational facility serving the students of the Mayborn College of Health Sciences. The CSLC has three unique components: a Simulation Hospital that facilitates multiple modalities of simulation-based education; a Standardized Patient clinic for teaching and evaluation; and Skills and Physical Diagnosis laboratories for students to develop assessment and procedural skills.
The Clinical Simulation Learning Center is located on the second floor of the Isabelle Rutherford Meyer Nursing Education Center on the campus of the University of Mary Hardin-Baylor. The CSLC is approximately 20,000 sq ft. which includes two large skills labs, a physical assessment lab, a standardized patient clinical space, and the Simulation Hospital.
Mission Statement: The mission of the Clinical Simulation Learning Center is to engage students in a Christ-centered learning environment where they will develop the knowledge, skills, and interprofessional competencies to become leaders in the complex and dynamic environment of health sciences.
Vision Statement: The Clinical Simulation Learning Center aspires to provide exemplary simulation-based education that improves learning outcomes using state-of-the-art facilities and equipment, interprofessional collaboration, and evidence-based practices, to support our community with compassionate healthcare professionals who provide exceptional care in a rapidly changing world.

A Standardized Patient (SP) is an individual who has been trained to serve as a participant in a simulation experience. The SP plays an important role in the Scott and White College of Nursing as a patient and / or family member. Student and SP interactions typically include interviews, examinations, and patient teaching.
SPs are monitored during the educational activity by the SP Program. Monitoring of the SPs includes but is not limited to consistent and accurate portrayal of the case, professional conduct and completion of checklists and evaluation forms. SPs are to maintain professional and educational conduct during the activities. SPs who do not maintain professionalism and their educational role as defined by the SP Program will be terminated from the program.
The Standardized Patient Program maintains and expects a professional atmosphere for all educational activities and participants including SPs, learners, faculty, and observers. As an SP, you are expected to maintain a professional role and attitude at all time while working for the SP Program. SPs should dress appropriately, avoid using offensive language, and respect all participants and learners. Harassment of any kind will not be tolerated.
During an activity, you should not speak with the learners “out of role” at any time, unless permitted by faculty. It is vital to maintain realism and high-quality simulation at all times. Do not make gestures or make comments about the learners at any time. Cell phones, texting, MP3 players, iPods and other electronic devices will not be used during an activity.
If at any time during an encounter you are uncomfortable with the encounter or the learner is interacting with you in an unprofessional manner, please ask the learner to “STOP” and immediately report to the SP Program staff.
Individuals examining you may be students and not qualified to render any medical opinion regarding your physical condition. Students and physicians are not to be consulted about any personal health conditions during an activity. SPs who do not maintain a professional image will be terminated from the program.
Cancellations and Tardiness
The educational activities you are assigned for are depending on your participation. In the event you need to cancel participation, please inform the SP Program immediately. SPs are requested to arrive 15 to 30 minutes prior to the activity. This will ensure that the activity can begin on time and allow time for any questions or review of cases.
