Two new "instructors" have joined the Wilson College nursing program. Two high-fidelity avatars have been purchased thanks to a generous $100,000 donation by WellSpan Health to the Wilson College Division of Nursing simulation lab. College Trustee Rhona S. Applebaum, Ph.D. gave an additional $50,000 to support their purchase and maintenance in the interactive lab.
