BCC Nursing Department Adds State-of-the-Art Birthing Simulator
The Nursing Department at Brunswick Community College recently received a SEAHEC Legacy Grant totaling more than $75,000 for the purchase of a new birthing simulator for its state-of-the-art birthing suite.
Victoria® is a life-like simulator that gives birth in real-time and can be programmed to simulate various birthing-related emergencies. The simulated birthing baby cries upon delivery and can be programmed to simulate newborn emergencies. “The new birthing simulator will create more hands-on learning opportunities for our students to provide safe and effective care to the laboring patient and newborn,” said Dr. Molly Curry, Dean of Health Sciences.
BCC offers both practical and associate degree (ADN) programs. We have a long history of excellent NCLEX pass rates and employment of our graduates. For more information on BCC’s degree and non-degree health care programs, email email@example.com or call 910-755-7320.

Located in Wilmington, South East AHEC (SEAHEC) is one of nine centers in the NC AHEC Program and serves Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, and Pender counties.
