Nation’s First Critical-care Transport Helicopter Simulator for Flight Nurse Training
Acute care nurse practitioner (ACNP) students, specializing in flight nursing at Case Western Reserve University, will train in the nation’s first state-of-the-art simulator built in an actual helicopter. The simulator creates the sense of treating critically injured patients from takeoff to landing.
The helicopter simulator was installed at the university’s Cedar Avenue Service Center in a new classroom designed for the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing’s Dorothy Ebersbach Academic Center for Flight Nursing Program.
The helicopter features some of the most advanced medical equipment with authentic aerial views projected within the windows and movement that mimics changing altitudes and weather conditions throughout the flight.
