$150,000 donation to UMass Dartmouth College of Nursing
to support cutting-edge training program

Dartmouth, Mass. -- Feb. 16, 2012: Dr. Elisabeth Pennington, former Dean of the College of Nursing at the University of Massachusetts Dartmouth, has donated $150,000 to support the College of Nursing's state-of-the-art new simulation lab and instructional technology center.

"Elisabeth Pennington's generous gift is just one more example of her leadership in the University community and devotion to the nursing profession,"said UMass Dartmouth Chancellor Jean F. MacCormack. "Speaking on behalf of the University, we are profoundly grateful."

Designed to simulate a hospital environment, the Dean Elisabeth Pennington Simulation Lab will contain a "virtual hospital" with a nurses' station and four treatment rooms with hospital beds and medical equipment -- while doubling the number of SimMen® (electronic mannequins that mimic human bodie responding to treatment).

"Thanks to Elisabeth's generous gift, we will dramatically increase our capacity to expose our student nurses to the serious health conditions they will experience in real clinical settings,"said current Dean of the College of Nursing, James Fain.

"Short of actually treating real patients, this training will be as real as it gets."

With construction scheduled to begin on the North Dartmouth campus later this year, the $150,000 gift will serve as a matching fund for all donations received to support the new "SimLab."
