Purdue Global and Northern Light Inland Hospital have inaugurated a new Simulation Center for Healthcare Education and Excellence in Maine, US.

Located in Waterville, Maine, the centre will offer hands-on training for Purdue Global nursing students, Inland Hospital staff, EMS, and other first responders in the community.

The centre features high-fidelity simulation suites, including adult, paediatric, labour/delivery mother, and neonatal manikins.

These manikins will be used for various training programmes, such as advanced life support and paediatric life support.

Purdue Global vice-president Melissa Burdi said: “We’re excited to enhance the delivery of health care by developing new and innovative methods to educate and train in a simulation centre like this, with a laser focus on patient safety and the transition to practise.”

The simulation centre is part of an expanded partnership between Purdue Global and Northern Light Inland Hospital, marking the fourth collaboration between Purdue Global and a community health system.

In addition, Purdue University entered a memorandum of understanding with two research universities in Taiwan, namely the National Yang Ming Chiao Tung University, and the National Chengchi University.

The aim is to collaborate on academic research, workforce development, and technology diplomacy efforts.

These partnerships are expected to enhance cooperation and create opportunities in the field of semiconductors, due to Taiwan’s key role as a microchip producer.
