FRANKLIN—The Paul D. Camp Community College Nursing program held an open house to demonstrate the capabilities of a high-tech patient simulator funded by Franklin Southampton Charities.

The Sim Man 3G, named BENNIE Simms for Bringing Every Nurse New and Innovative Education after Drs. Paul Wm. and Diana Conco submitted the suggestion during a contest held in February, provides interactive health training, according to Assistant Professor of Nursing Carol Wright.

“He can talk, cry, sweat and breathe,” Wright said. “He is equipped with lung, abdominal and heart sounds, and pulses all over his body.”
