One resident of the University of Portland’s History Museum in Shipstad Hall is a life-size, half-a-manikin in a trunk named Resusci Anne. With resilient rib-cage and sturdy pipes, Anne has survived hundreds of nursing student trials toward cardiopulmonary resuscitation (CPR). Resusci Anne was manufactured in the 1960s by a Norwegian toymaker, Asmund Laerdal, and acquired by the UP School of Nursing in 1969. Current nursing students receive hands-on and real-life situation training in the School of Nursing’s Dean Terry Misener Learning Resource Center, a five-bed, state-of-the-art, model hospital and clinic dedicated on April 8, 2008. Anne, fully recovered and honorably retired, receives visitors in the University of Portland History Museum each semester, in particular, students in Introduction to Nursing and Healthcare 101. Today the new hard-to-injure interactive patients in the Misener Learning Resource Center include multiple male and female manikins, a pediatric manikin, 3 infants and a newborn, plus a top of the line high-fidelity sim man 3G, all computer controlled to simulate symptoms and behaviors in the Nursing environment.
