Lincoln's LRC

Lincoln’s Learning Resource Center

Welcome to the UNMC College of Nursing-Lincoln Learning Resource Center! We are located and 12th and “O” streets in Lincoln, Nebraska, just 2 blocks from the city campus of the University of Nebraska at Lincoln. We are in the downtown area and are surrounded by restaurants, bookstores, and other local businesses which add to the flavor of our college.

In the learning center, we have faculty-led simulations encompassing all types of health care scenarios to help the students get the most out of every experience. In addition to the simulations and skills labs, the LRC labs are open to students for practice and refreshers whenever classes are not scheduled. We use interactive multi-media applications to enhance the students’ learning and retention.

Our resources include:

  • Computer lab available to all UNMC nursing students – 35 desktop computers with printers on site, as well as on-campus laptop checkout when demand is high
  • Simulation, skills lab, and health assessment lab to help students visualize and practice their new role as nurses, using up-to-date technology and scenarios
  • Variety of items to check out to assist with presentation within the community and the University (dental items, hand-washing, nutrition, art supplies, easels, etc.)
  • Student lounge next to computer lab with vending machines, microwaves, refrigerator, seating areas for group work or lunch break, and a student copier
  • Dedicated LRC staff who can assist with computer applications, technological troubleshooting, and more

These are some of the many ways the LRC equipment and staff help CON-Lincoln students succeed in their programs. Nursing is a dynamic field with high demands and high expectations. The LRC is your first clinical stop on the road to nursing success!
