Clinical Learning Experiences

Clinical learning experiences take place in Barclay College’s newly remodeled Jackson Hall and in partnering healthcare agencies. Jackson Hall houses both a skills laboratory and a simulation hospital.

The skills laboratory provides a six-bed learning environment where students utilize low-fidelity patient manikins to apply theoretical concepts and skills needed to provide safe, quality, patient-centered care in a controlled setting.

The simulation hospital provides a four-bed, safe, controlled hospital-like learning environment where students utilize high-fidelity patient simulators to develop complex nursing skills in simulated crisis situations. Students are able to make mistakes, correct those mistakes in real-time, and learn without the fear of compromising patient safety. Students are also able to build upon the skills of prioritization, management, and delegation of patient care.

Students will participate in professional nursing practicums throughout the BSN program in partnering healthcare agencies. Our current partnering agencies include Pratt Regional Medical Center, Kiowa County Memorial Hospital, Ascension Via Christi, Pratt Health and Rehab, and Larned State Hospital.
