St. Vincent's Health System held an open house and blessing in July for its new nursing education training center on the Samford University Campus. The Ascension St. Vincent's Education Center will serve as an advanced training site for new nursing hires.
The Training Center includes a skills lab, medication room, and classroom, as well as two simulation and debriefing rooms for nurses to receive hands-on training in real-life scenarios. In addition to training new St. Vincent's nurses, Samford College of Health Sciences students will also have access to the center, as well as the latest Electronic Health Record system technology.
This is Ascension's third nursing onboarding center to go live across the country.
