Clinical Skills Resources Centre lab
Simulated practice requires a combination of theoretical knowledge and practical skills, in order to keep our patients and service users safe. When learning skills, students need an understanding of why, when and how that action is best carried out, this is where our clinical skills labs come in. They enable students to: 
  • Learn skills at your own pace without the pressure of getting it right first time
  • Receive support from your peers and lecturers
  • Practice in a safe environment
  • Develop your professionalism ready to go out on placement.
Students are supported and taught by experts within the fields of nursing and midwifery, utilising specialist equipment that students will see out on placement.
Students will learn a whole range of skills specific to the profession they are entering and a variety of basic health related skills. Students will have the opportunity to build upon the theory they have learnt, and put this into practice, to become ready to perform these on real patients during practice placements.

The University is committed to discouraging the use of private cars, however, it continues to permit very limited car parking on campus for staff and visitors who hold a blue badge.

Only students with mobility impairment will normally be permitted to park on the Plymouth campus.

The University operates a Parking Charge Notice (PCN) enforcement system to assist in maintaining an orderly and safe parking facility on its campus. The enforcement system is managed and operated in partnership with First parking LLP and the security department at the University.

Alternative parking can be found in Drake Circus shopping mall and the Regent Street car park nearby. Charges apply.
