If you decide to study a degree in Nursing or an Ambulance Technician Practice course at NTU in Mansfield, your teaching will be fully based within the Health and Allied Professions building, combining the various facilities depending on your course, modules and interests, from the authentic Garvey and Seacole Wards to a mock GP office and clinical prep room.

The Health and Allied Professions Building is well-equipped with a range of facilities and equipment you will be using on a daily basis should you pursue a career in your chosen degree subject.

Garvey Ward

The Garvey Ward is a mock observation ward that currently features four beds of incredibly lifelike mannequins, three of which can be robotically controlled and set using a hand-held device to simulate a range of patient symptoms, illnesses and real-life scenarios you may experience in your role in a hospital.

Seacole Ward and virtual reality wall

Split into three areas, the Seacole Ward again features a mock ward comprising two hospital beds of mannequins that students will learn how to perform day to day care on, an area to practice social work skills in domestic settings, and a digital virtual reality wall which provides an immersive learning environment.

The virtual reality wall is an iPad-operated digital projection onto three walls that is fully configurable in real time.

Lecturers can set the wall up with visuals and sounds to create a realistic situation (such as a motorway crash scene, school playing field or train station) for both Ambulance Technician Practice students and Nursing students to learn and practice what to do in a range of imitation circumstances that they could be faced with in the roles they go into during placement work and post-completing their courses.

The virtual reality wall also features a hospital ward simulator programme which can be navigated using a hand-held device.
