University of Detroit Mercy launches STAR Center training facility for nursing students

A new cutting-edge research and training facility at the University of Detroit Mercy, the STAR Center, has launched to elevate the training of its nursing students. The Simulation, Technology and Research Center, as it’s formally named, gives nursing students hands-on experience with a wide range of scenarios and environments they might find working in the medical field.  The 5,000-square-foot facility also serves as a hub for research and innovation, where students and faculty can collaborate on new nursing projects. This comes after the university’s College of Health Professions built its first simulation center in 2010, albeit a smaller version, Interim Dean Janet Baiardi said. The new facility is on the University of Detroit Mercy’s McNichol’s Campus in the College of Health Professions.  RELATED:  One Detroit contributor Daijah Moss visited the university to tour the training center, delve into its innovative features and learn about its potential to enhance students’ proficiency in the medical field. She talks with Baiardi, College of Health Professions Interim Associate Dean Saran Hollier, STAR Center Clinical Instructor Dr. Sheila Williamson, STAR Center Assistant Dean of Prelicensure Clinical Partnerships Nina Favor and some of the students in the program.
