New centre for adult nursing education
A new state-of-the-art centre for nursing, health and care practitioners was recently launched at the University of Portsmouth. The centre has been set-up for students to learn in realistic acute and community clinical settings.
The Centre for Simulation in Health and Care will provide new learning opportunities to students in the University’s newly launched Adult Nursing Degree programme. The centre was officially opened by Professor Jane Cummings, the Chief Nursing Officer for England.
The simulated work environments provide unique opportunities for acute and community-based learning, which will help students respond to challenges facing the acute health sector. It will give students from a range of subject areas such as Nursing, Social Work, Paramedicas, Forensics and Pharmacy the opportunity to learn in a safe and real learning environment.
Televic Interpreter Training Suite
Portsmouth has installed the very latest Interpreter Training Suite from Televic, a leader in professional communication technology. This brand-new facility has been specifically designed for masters and undergraduate Interpreting programmes. Students will participate in simulated conferences and meetings where they will learn professional interpreting skills as well as transferable skills such as public communication. The suite will offer the opportunity to work in a variety of languages and give students the opportunity to improve their skills as professional interpreters and delegates.
