They say practice makes perfect. At the Mount Carmel Center for Innovative Learning, we're practicing real-life medical situations every day to perfect patient care and improve outcomes.

The center is a dynamic, system-wide training center with a diversity of high-fidelity human patient simulators and clinical education resources that's available to all our physicians, nurses, colleagues, students and community partners.

Located on the Mount Carmel West campus, state-of-the-art, 11,000-square-foot Center is a collaboration among the Mount Carmel College of Nursing, Mount Carmel Medical Education and the Mount Carmel Medical Staff that allows members of our healthcare delivery teams to:

  • Work and train together
  • Develop new skills and processes
  • Identify problems
  • Implement patient-focused team treatment
  • Enhance quality care
  • Improve patient outcomes

Driven By Technology

The centerpieces of the Center for Innovative Learning are the computer-driven, high-fidelity human patient simulators, which are life-like adult and pediatric mannequins that breathe, blink and bleed. They have precise internal mechanics and respond physiologically to user interventions, allowing both our students and medical professionals to see, practice and react to real-life patient situations without the risk of consequences.

The Center also features a unique laparoscopic surgical simulator that allows users to experience a range of laparoscopic procedures. It replicates seven different laparoscopic surgeries and over 60 patient scenarios, including general surgery, gynecology, urology, bariatric surgery and colon and rectal surgery.

It also includes a top-of-the-line endoscopic simulator for upper and lower gastrointestinal procedure training, as well as task trainings for practicing an array of different medical procedures.

The Center is far more than simulators. It also includes:

  • A multi-media classroom
  • Skills classroom
  • Two debriefing rooms with video capability to review completed simulations
  • Data-collection and outcome-monitoring technologies

Improving Care and Outcomes

With all of its tools and resources, the Mount Carmel Center for Innovative Learning is the consummate collaborative training facility for a health system that prides itself on providing integrated, patient-centered care. And the advanced education, preparation and training it fosters will ensure that Mount Carmel remains a leader not only in learning and technology, but also in improving patient outcomes and care.

1 During the Fall Semester of 2010, a total of 179 new students (first-time and transfer) entered Mount Carmel College of Nursing. After 6 years (as of August 1, 2016), 74% of those students had graduated with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree.

2 Because it is not within the institution’s mission to provide preparation for students to transfer to another institution, Mount Carmel College of Nursing does not track or report transfer-out data.

3 Mount Carmel College of Nursing does not issue Immigration Form I-20 from the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS). Therefore, the College does not enroll non-resident alien students.

On November 19, 2015, 86 new members were inducted into the MCCN's Rho Omicron Chapter during a festive and dynamic ceremony held in the MSB building at Mount Carmel West. The inductees consisted of students and nurses from the undergraduate program, RN-BSN program, graduate program and community leaders. All in attendance had the opportunity to listen to a powerful presentation given by MCCN Academic Dean Tara L. Spalla, PhD, RN. Dr. Spalla’s message to the newly inducted focused on leadership and that as new members beginning or continuing their journey within nursing to remember you are the leaders of change and the future. Dr. Spalla used STTI’s current President Dr. Hester Klopper’s call to action that focused on serving locally, transforming regionally and leading globally through four themes/roadmaps to leadership: servant leadership, connectedness, transformation and gratitude. Dr. Spalla encouraged the newly inducted to use their voice, embrace leadership opportunity, and inspire and lead others to contribute to the nursing profession. The message continued to center on STTI’s themes of love, honor, courage, connect, engage, grow, and advance, and she challenged the newly inducted to practice these important themes/roadmaps to leadership.
