One patient is an elderly man with chest pain. Another is a toddler with a history of seizures. The third is a pregnant woman with a fever and chills. None of them is real, but the intensity displayed by nursing and medical students charged with caring for them might make you think otherwise. The computerized mannequins at National American University, 8428 W. 13th, are one part of a local simulation initiative to reduce risk to patients and make it easier for young medical professionals to learn the skills they need once they have RN, MD or another set of letters behind their names.
