FEU VINES Laboratory

August 7th, 2008 by Dianne Peña

Today was my second time entering the newest and only-in-FEU laboratory for nursing education because we are assigned there for our duty. The first was during my level III first semester revalida but it was not yet fully functional. You may often hear FEU nursing students saying:

Duty kami bukas sa VINES…
Nakapunta ka na sa VINES?
Ansaya sa VINES… the best!
Wow, sosyal… sa VINES kayo…
Excited na ako mag-VINES…

Which leaves you clueless about what you just heard. Worry no more because I am here to orient to on what is a VINES Laboratory.

VINES is an acronym for Virtual Integrated Nursing Education Simulation. It is the first and only full operational virtual nursing laboratory in the Philippines. It provides a realistic, state-of-the-art, joint commission compliant, and controlled safe environment for the students to practice safely in supportive environment before the students can enter the real world of healthcare. It is designed to replace the healthcare setting and facilities development of skills by using a simulated healthcare setting.

So in short, this is a hospital-like laboratory wherein it is divided into different areas: 6 bed wards, Medication room, Clean Utility room, Nurses’ lounge, Ante room (I am not familiar with this), Isolation/Private room, Control room 1&2, Intensive Care Unit 1&2, Emergency room, Operating/Delivery Room complex, Holding area, High Risk Pregnancy unit/Post- Anesthesia Care unit, Nursery and Central Supply room.

There are also mannequins (GERI for geriatrics, MIKE and MICHELLE for pediatrics, NOELLE for maternal and neonatal birthing, PEDI BLUE for neonates, CPR SUSIE for CPR, HAL for Acute Biologic Crisis) on which most nursing interventions can be practiced and variety of equipment that can be found in the hospital setting including a hoist, patient monitors and infusion pumps, a bedside sink and table.

If you want to view FEU’s VINES laboratory you can watch this video:

Before I forgot, VINES laboratory is equipped with cameras and microphones to monitor the activities in the laboratory. It is something like the “Big Brother”. Cameras are capable of zooming-in and zooming-out and rotating 360 degrees.

Our laboratory was also featured on GMA 7’s Saksi. Here’s the video:

No wonder why FEU is being branded as the Fastest Earning University LOL! It is good to know that our tuition fee is going to something, which could be of great help for our learning. We will be oriented on hospital settings in which at times we aren’t able to know or experience with the “real” hospitals. Lucky for our batch because we were able to utilize this laboratory when it is fully-functional already. During our simulations, our Clinical instructors would tell the prices of each mannequins and equipments for us to take care of those things and believe me, our tuition fee is not enough to pay for those just in case.

VINES laboratory have a high tech simulators that will make you say “Wow!” “Bongga…” “Sosyal!” “Wala sa bundok nito…”. It really facilitated my learning very well. I enjoyed it very much. I appreciated nursing procedures, which was discussed to us and I was able to practice it (in nursing, you will not know how it goes if you don’t perform it). This I believe is FEU’s edge among other nursing schools mushroom-ing (LOL!) nowadays and I am definitely proud of it (because I paid for it. LOL! Kidding…).
