MANKATO — Minnesota State University's nursing simulation center — where mannequins can describe their symptoms to student nurses, "bleed," sweat, even give birth — has received provisional accreditation by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare.

That makes the Maverick Family Nursing Simulation Center one of just three facilities in Minnesota and one of only about 100 worldwide to achieve accreditation, according to Colleen Royle, the center's director.

The 16,000-square-foot simulation center is part of MSU's Clinical Sciences Building, which opened on the east side of campus early last year. In all, the center has 13 "high-fidelity" mannequins ranging from newborns to adults, and they're used in professional training as well as by the university's nursing students.
