Wilson College receives first training mannequin

CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. — Wilson College has received its first high-fidelity mannequin, “Lucina,” purchased with a $110,000 gift from Summit Health.

Students in Wilson’s nursing program will use Lucina to practice skills in predetermined scenarios. Lucinda will allow them to safely perform procedures and interact with a lifelike simulator before working with people.

Lucina stays on the first floor of the college nursing resource center, along with five medium-fidelity mannequins, which make up a fully functioning intensive care unit.

Wilson’s nursing program works with a number of community partners, including Summit Health, Keystone Health and Menno Haven Retirement Communities.
