The Eau Claire site has four simulated hospital rooms equipped with audiovisual controls, a nursing station/debriefing center, and twenty hospital bed spaces. In addition, there are eight clinic rooms with audiovisual controls.
The Marshfield site, located on the UW-Stevens Point at Marshfield campus, has its own Clinical Learning Center, containing a Simulation Center and a Skills Lab. Both sites have the capability to stream sessions between the Eau Claire and Marshfield sites and to community partners.

Community access to the Center
Instructional design plays an extremely important role in incorporating simulation into the curriculum. The selection of the type of simulation, how simulation might be used, and a strategy for sequencing knowledge and skills to meet specific learning objectives is critical to the successful use of simulation. Design services for curriculum and research are available through the faculty of the College of Nursing and Health Sciences.
