Medical Simulation Improves Job Readiness Skills

Medical Simulation Improves Job Readiness Skills

 BOOST at Robeson Community College (RCC) aims to better prepare students for healthcare jobs that require highly skilled and competent individuals.  By now most technicians, nursing, medical students, and doctors have had or should have had some experience using medical simulation for training. Whether it be through moulage, task trainers, computer modeling, video, and or simulators. These types of training opportunities are invaluable for students; they gain not only the task knowledge, but also the hands on skill knowledge they need.  At RCC we are able to offer entry-level and advanced healthcare students the ability to practice their skills to mastery through use of peer to peer labs and supplemental classroom instruction.

One powerful way we can do this is through moulage.
