The student assistant will work closely with the Lab Manager, the Simulation Director, and the Simulation Coordinator to facilitate the daily operations of the College of Nursing Learning Lab areas (Learning Lab, Practice Lab, Simulation Lab, Graduate Lab). Student assistants will be responsible for frequent cleaning of student work areas between lab classes.  Student assistants will also assist in setting up and cleaning up for Simulation and Lab classes on a daily basis, as well as organizing and storing supplies and equipment after the daily Simulation/Lab classes are over. Student assistants will be responsible for helping to sort and store new supplies that are received, as well as for preparing supplies and kits that are re-used from semester to semester.
