Tysons Corner, Virginia, Nursing Program: a Hands-On BSN

The SIMCARE CENTER™ features various aspects of simulated care, and the center’s high-tech patient manikins help you develop diagnostic nursing expertise. Patient simulators have bodily functions and show vital signs, and they demonstrate a wide range of symptoms.
