Learning Resource Center

Learning Resource Centers are located on each of the College of Nursing's five campuses in order to meet the needs of the students across the state.


The learning resources center provides a multimedia learning environment where students acquire knowledge, skills and attitudes that promote safe, patient-centered care. Staff partner with faculty to provide learner-centered activities that integrate curricular concepts with psychomotor skills/behaviors, critical reasoning and clinical judgment.


The primary objectives of the Learning Resource Centers are to:

  • Provide a supportive environment that promotes learning, teaching and research
  • Facilitate student learning through the use of visual, auditory, kinesthetic and tactile abilities
  • Provide resources that promote the acquisition of psychomotor skills/behaviors
  • Promote acquisition of critical reasoning and clinical judgment skills

 In the Learning Resource Center, nursing students will:

  • Learn new clinical skills and practice skills in a safe, non-threatening environment
  • Apply clinical knowledge to situations that are put into health care context
  • Have access to resources and equipment such as computers, blood pressure cuffs, teaching aids, otoscope/ophthalmoscope and more.

 The core values of the Learning Resource Center follow UNMC's ITEACH values.
