Students at the University of Virginia Nursing School are attending class in the newly renovated multi-million dollar facility.
The Clinical Simulation Learning Center re-opened in January after about three million dollars-worth of renovations.
The new classroom will help nursing students get high-tech hands-on training before heading out into the real world.
"We want them to be armed with the skills and confidence that is necessary to care for patients when they are on the unit," said UVa Nursing Professor Reba Moyer Childress. "And I think and believe with our resources here, I see a major advancement in our students as a result of these resources."
About a hundred students graduate from UVa each year.
