The FH JOANNEUM Institute of Health Care and Nursing offers a state-of-the-art simulation centre equipped with modern high-level simulation technology. It features four fully equipped patient rooms for simulating different nursing settings for the use of students, lecturers and partners:

  • Intensive care
  • Child and infant care, including a mother-child unit
  • Long-term care
  • Acute care

The simulation centre is equipped with an AV recording and debriefing system, which allows nursing sequences to be transmitted to seminar rooms, recorded and played back to support debriefing.

A large number of high-fidelity simulators are available to support training:

  • Nursing simulators for training nursing skills
  • Baby and infant simulators
  • Simulators for training real-life emergency situations (baby, infant and adult)
  • Age simulation suit
  • Tremor simulator
  • Back pain simulator
  • etc.

The infrastructure is continuously being expanded with new equipment, especially simulators for self-awareness training.
