Technology Learning Complex


Student nurse in the TLC

From the director
Welcome to the Technology Learning Complex. In keeping with the College of Nursing’s mission statement to “enhance the art and science of nursing through excellence in education,” our faculty and staff are committed to incorporating advanced technologies and evidence-based practice in a state-of-the-art learning environment. The staff of the TLC is committed to providing an experiential learning environment that helps to build confidence and foster strong decision-making skills in students.  By maintaining high standards of quality clinical education, we are helping future nurses to prepare to meet the challenges and demands of global health care environments. 

Lisa Rohrig
Director, Technology Learning Complex

The Technology Learning Complex conducts nearly 600 nursing simulations each year with the help of computer-controlled human patient simulators. The use of high tech mannequins provides opportunities for students to practice skills in a safe environment. Human patient simulators afford students the ability to differentiate assessment findings such as heart and lung sounds as well as assess and determine early action for such conditions as shock, hemorrhage and respiratory distress.  In addition, our students interact with a virtual community of patients in the town of Mirror Lake and have access to those patient's records through the use of a well developed Electronic Health Record (EHR) system. Our ongoing research on learning outcomes in simulation will contribute to the development of this innovative approach to nursing education.

We invite you to partner with us in educating the nurses of tomorrow. For information about making a gift to the TLC, please contact  College of Nursing development director Katy Trombitas at (614) 688-1086 or e-mail
