Nursing Program in Miramar: a Hands-On BSN

At Chamberlain’s Miramar campus, you will get hands-on training in our SIMCARE CENTER™ and in our on-site clinical setting. As you work with fellow students, faculty, mentors, and seasoned registered nurses, you learn important skills in direct patient-care nursing. The SIMCARE CENTER™ features a wide range of simulated care, and the center’s high-tech patient manikins will help you pick up vital nursing skills. Patient simulators have bodily functions and show vital signs, and they demonstrate a variety of symptoms. The SIMCARE CENTER™ provides a safe student health care setting where you can sharpen your nursing skills before moving on to human patients in the clinicals portion of the Chamberlain Miramar curriculum.
