Clinical Lab Solutions - Computer Training for Nursing Students

The new and innovative Clinical Solutions Lab opened on the College of Central Florida (CF) campus in August 2003. A partnership between Munroe Regional, CF and McKesson Information Solutions, the lab provides state-of-the-art computer training to nursing students at CFCC. The lab offers students the opportunity to learn computerized bedside, point-of-care charting in a training environment. In the hospital setting, this clinical patient information is immediately accessible to physicians via McKesson's web-based Horizon WP Physician Portal. Nineteen computers with accompanying software are used to train approximately 280 nursing students each year. The lab is also used to provide development for nurses rejoining the workforce through nurse refresher training.
