About Us


In the fall of 2009 South Plains College opened the Center for Clinical Excellence (CCE), a state of the art facility that utilizes the latest technology to educate health occupation students on the South Plains. The CCE was partially funded by the U.S. Department of Labor’s Community-Based Job Training Grant. South Plains College along with other key partners in the community and the health care industry completed the funding of the CCE.

The CCE is home to the Clinical Informatics Center where students have access to interactive learning simulations, virtual IV trainers and computer assisted instruction. The CCE’s staff serve as a technology resource for faculty and students alike. SIMSPC is a simulated hospital environment complete with advanced patient simulators, medical equipment and supplies. SIMSPC provides a realistic learning experience in a safe setting. Students engage in clinical scenarios which replicate patient care situations. The advanced patient simulators interact with and respond to student interventions. This interaction requires students to utilize critical thinking and decision making skills. It also provides the opportunity to practice newly learned skills and procedures.

The Center for Clinical Excellence is utilized by Health Occupation programs such as; Associate Degree Nursing, Vocational Nursing, Emergency Medical Services & Respiratory Therapy. The CCE also serves as a resource for our clinical partners and provides tours and hands-on experiences for local schools and community organizations.
