Nurses get to practice on SimMan

Kudos to Southwestern Michigan College's "flagship" Nursing Center of Excellence for getting "SimMan," a $42,000 computer-operated robot, to train its 10-member nursing staff to help reduce medical errors. (link to article here). I got to see one of these things in action at Duke several years ago, and it was amazing. I wish every CME organization could afford one of these dudes.
