Campus Life & Facilities

The Jersey City campus, located at 684 Newark Avenue, comprises a new, three-floor building that opened in October 2013 and is furnished with the latest technology and resources appropriate for EIC programs. The building is approximately 34,000 square feet and houses 7 classrooms, 5 labs/computer rooms, and 30 dental hygiene workstations.

The Campus offers students and faculty sufficient access to desktop computers, overhead projectors, library and information resources, and plastic models to facilitate hands-on and effective teaching and learning. Laboratories are well equipped to meet training needs, for example:

  • The phlebotomy laboratories are equipped with arm models and phlebotomy supplies
  • The patient care laboratories are equipped with hospital beds and other related equipment
  • The dental hygiene laboratory is equipped with X-ray machines and patient clinical areas
  • The ultrasound laboratories are equipped with six (6) ultrasound machines at each campus, one (1) of which is a portable machine; EKG machines and supplies are available for laboratory activities and tutoring.

The nursing labs are equipped with four (4) simulated hospital patient care settings and Lucina, a Childbirth Simulator (see description below). Each is complete with an electronic bed, overbed table, bedside stand, a headwall containing a blood pressure system, suction, air/oxygen outlets, and an equipment board containing otoscopes and ophthalmoscopes. The laboratory is equipped with wireless access to the campus network and is a smart classroom with a large screen and ceiling-mounted data projector. The Nursing Department has two simulation mannequins along with software components to make the mannequins fully functional. The laboratory also serves as a classroom which can accommodate 24 students.

The third floor of the Jersey City campus is devoted to the Dental Hygiene Program. The 11,300-square-foot space houses a dental hygiene clinic, radiology rooms, a panorex suite, a student simulator laboratory, classrooms, faculty office spaces, storage, and the dental clinic reception area. The lab currently has ten (10) student dental simulators and one (1) instructor simulator. These simulators provide a realistic learning experience to develop the necessary motor skills and clinical knowledge. Students practice in pairs on the simulator while watching a large-screen overhead projection of the instructor performing a dental hygiene procedure.

The Clinical facility is equipped with computers at every station, and patient monitors for oral health educational instruction. Digital radiographs can be brought up on the computer screen for treatment planning and patient education, while digital patient record keeping instills a paper-free environment.

The campus building has a lounge available for student and staff use. This area offers vending machine options, though the campus is in a location that offers students access to a vast array of dining and refreshment opportunities nearby. The campus can be reached via public transportation, which is the preferred mode of travel because parking is extremely limited in Jersey City.

The building is appropriately furnished for administrative operations. Faculty and advisors have access to private areas to secure their files and space to meet with students to discuss sensitive matters, especially when discussing issues related to student privacy.

Lucina Childbirth Simulator

Developed by CAE Healthcare, the Lucina Childbirth Simulator is a wireless medical mannequin with validated maternal-fetal physiology. It is used to provide reliable and realistic hands-on training for childbirth scenarios, such as normal deliveries, breech births, shoulder dystocia, and other critical emergencies. Lucina can breathe, cry, sweat, blink — even simulate a postpartum hemorrhage. She has measurable vital signs, and the pupils will react if you shine a light on them.

Palpable, soft skin can stimulate uterine contractions and leg and hip articulation for practice in childbirth positioning and related birthing maneuvers. A lifelike fetus is delivered through a realistic birthing canal. It provides fetal heart sounds, airway suctioning, a programmable cry upon delivery, predicted 1-minute and 5-minute Apgar scores based on venous and arterial blood gas valves, and an umbilical cord that can be cut and clamped.

Lucina is an excellent learning tool, helping nursing students improve their critical reasoning skills. During a simulated postpartum hemorrhage, for example, Lucina will bleed and present students with the data they need to assess the situation: She will turn pale, her blood pressure will drop, and her pulse will rise. After they perform an intervention, they can assess if what they did was successful based on Lucina’s response.

Online Campus

EIC students are provided with Google Suite hosts. Online students leverage technology to access their courses and provide their online learning experience. Specifically, EIC uses Canvas as the Learning Management System (LMS) platform. To facilitate ease of access to Canvas, there is a single sign-on integration with Google Suite (email and cloud tools); this means that students use the same password to access their emails and access their LMS. Canvas is integrated with DiamondD, the student information system. DiamondD provides students’ schedules and final grades back to their LMS course shells. When relevant to their assignments, students can use TurnItIn, a plagiarism tool within Canvas that assesses their work for plagiarized content before submission. They also have the option to purchase their ebooks within Canvas via VitalSource’s ebook integration.
