CNM's LearningSpace System

LearningSpace is a video capture and management system that CNM uses during simulation based instruction.  Use the link below to sign in.


CNM's simulation program provides innovative high-fidelity simulation covering all age ranges.  CNM has adult, pediatric (3-7 years old), newborn, and birthing simulators.  We use CAE's LearningSpace system to record simulations in our labs and GoPro to record simulations outdoors and in other locations. 

The simulation team collaborates with faculty to create simulation based instruction for healthcare programs.

We also provide custom contract training for those wishing to develop effective training programs for their employees.

Our simulations cover a wide range of medical conditions and trauma.  The simulation team strives to create realistic moulage and settings for our simulations.
