The Regional Innovation in Simulation Education (RISE) Center at RMU
We use life-like computerized mannequins and trained actors (standardized patients) in many of our courses in the RMU School of Nursing and Health Sciences. The RISE Center is one of only a select few free standing nursing programs accredited by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. The RISE faculty and instructors adhere to the Standards of Best Practice: SimulationSM and are all specially trained or certified in simulation.
The RISE Center was developed in 2009 and moved into a brand new 7000+ square foot space in the new Scaife Hall in January 2016. The RISE Center is a major regional educational resource and a center of excellence for simulation training and research. All RISE senior faculty have their PhDs and are recognized for their simulation research and are instructors in the RMU Leadership in Simulation Certificate program.
