  • <blockquote class="quote-block--simple"> <p> “The simulation labs in the Health and Human Services Building have really helped. The mannequins are awesome—they can do everything. You go in there, you’re thrown into a situation, and things change. It’s really good critical-thinking training, to see where you lack, and where your strong points are.”</p> <p class="blockquote-author"><strong>Beatrice Perez</strong>, Class of 2019, Nursing</p> </blockquote>
