Although every room in SAEL can be used for skills training, there is a designated
section in the center where students will learn and practice skills. All juniors
in the BSN program will undergo several weeks of skills training during their first
semester of upper division before taking care of real patients in the clinical environment.

In the past, it was standard practice for nursing students to practice giving injections
by sticking needles into oranges? Some institutions even allowed students to practice
this skill on one another! Now students will practice administering shots on a patient
simulator or into an injection pad.
