Simulation Voicers Program

Welcome to the Simulation Voicers Program at Grand Valley State University. As a component of the Simulation Center our Simulation Voicers Program offers students many opportunities to develop and practice skills essential to outstanding clinical practice and safe patient care. We employ individuals who have the ability to portray the role of patients with many different conditions and emotional states in inpatient settings. Students are able to practice skills, including communication and physical assessment skills, in a safe environment, and further develop as emerging health care professionals. 

The GVSU Simulation Voicers Program currently serves students from many academic programs which include Nursing, Physician Assistant Studies, and Physical Therapy. 

The mission of the Grand Valley Simulation Team and Learning Resource Center is to promote interprofessional health care delivery by enhancing professional competencies through a safe, interactive and engaging learning environment. The following information outlines the expectations we have for employees of the Simulation Voicers Program as well as the policies and procedures essential to accomplish our mission.
