ONEONTA – Nursing students at Hartwick College will soon have some new equipment to learn from with the help of a recent grant.

Hartwick College has received a $300,000 grant from The Clark Foundation to help fund a new Hospital Suite Simulation Unit for the college’s nursing department, which will be located in repurposed space in Smith Hall, the college announced Monday.

The simulation unit will replicate a hospital unit with four single-bed rooms, an eight-bed room, a nursing station and technical equipment, such as patient-care simulation manikins, computers, cardiac monitors and instrumentation and supplies.

“We are delighted to be helping Hartwick College further enhance its nursing program,” said Jane Forbes Clark, president of The Clark Foundation, in a news release. “This latest funding not only helps grow the size of the program but also deepen the training the nursing students receive so they can be ready to make an immediate impact upon graduation when working at Bassett or other upstate healthcare institutions or systems.”

Students will rotate into the simulation unit from their clinical learning at regional healthcare facilities.

College officials say this grant and new unit will allow the college to better prepare its nursing students to enter the field, and will also allow them to grow the department by another 10 students.
