Volunteer Opportunity – BYU Nursing Department

The BYU Nursing Department is looking for theatre student volunteers to help us enhance the simulation learning experience for our Nursing students. These will be one hour sessions where you will be assuming the role of family member to a simulated patient (high fidelity manikin). You will be at the bedside in our simulation center (Kimball tower) and will interact with the student nurses as they work on meeting multiple patient and family needs. Wigs and props will be provided as well as a detailed role distribution and simulation objectives. Simulation dates will be Nov. 8-9, 15-16 and 29-30. More information and a sign up document will be available in the newsletter at the start of Fall Semester. For questions, contact Christine Peters at
