All gifts will be matched dollar-for-dollar up to $5,000 by a friend of the School Nursing!
Nursing simulation is an integral part of the undergraduate and graduate nursing education programs at CSUF and across the country. Simulation training prepares students for everyday low-risk clinical situations, chronic conditions, and complex scenarios they will face as practitioners. With more than 900 nursing students enrolled in our programs and engaged in skills training at both the Fullerton Campus and the Irvine Center, the simulation equipment is in use constantly and often items need replacement or repair when items break or exceed their useable life.
On #TitansGive day of giving we hope to raise $10,000 to purchase the equipment listed below for our simulation labs:
Two refurbished IV Pumps to be utilized and housed permanently at the CSUF Irvine Center Simulation Lab. The Alaris IV pumps will allow faculty to train multiple clinical groups that are in two locations at the same time. The Refurbished Alaris Medley Infusion pumps are half the price of new pumps. Cost: $1,500
Chester Chest Model is a torso model designed to provide realistic experience to students in the care of common, long-term vascular access routes. With this model students can simulate insertion, care, and removal of long-term vascular access routes and practice accessing a peripherally inserted central catheter or peripheral port. Cost: $1,000
Respiratory Ventilator – Students in critical care rotations do not always have the opportunity to practice the skills of inline suctioning, vent settings, and FiO2. The students have requested this equipment so they can understand how to use the ventilator prior to caring for patients in Intensive Care. Cost: $4,500
Pediatric Stretcher Crib – We recently received funds through a grant to purchase a new pediatric mannequin, but the school does not have a crib to place the mannequin for realistic practice. Cost: $1,800
Additional equipment including chest tube set, Accu Check machines for glucose monitoring, rolling blood pressure cuff machine with variety of cuff sizes, cloth hospital pants for standardized patients, and edema moulage. Cost: $1,200
Please consider contributing to the School of Nursing so that we may continue to provide our nursing students with state of the art simulation experiences, which lead to the best nursing care possible. Should we raise more than $10,000 we will use the funds to purchase additional items on our wish list, which is always growing! No contribution is too small!
