SUNY Orange Nursing Students Partner with Touro Students

MIDDLETOWN, N.Y. – On two occasions in recent weeks, students from SUNY Orange’s nursing program and Touro College of Osteopathic Medicine students conducted an interprofessional nursing simulation exercise at SUNY Orange’s Middletown campus simulation lab.

The training marked the first time students from the two institutions have collaborated on a simulation communication scenario. The exercise included a scenario introduction, the execution of the simulation and a post-scenario debriefing. Faculty from the two institutions participated by assuming roles within the scenario, and simulation manikins were utilized as well.

Students from the two schools are expected to engage in another scenario training in March or April.
