Lee University recently announced the winners of its contest for students, faculty, and staff to name the School of Nursing’s new nursing simulators.

Submitters of winning names include Brian Conn, Camille Heartfield, Tylor Hudson, Grayson Long, Evelyn Leung, Giulia Mugnaini, Beth Seymour, and Megan Wimpelberg. Winning manikin names often made a play on words, such as “Manny Quinn,” “Petey Atricks,” or “Les Payne.” Submissions were received from faculty, staff, and students.

“We were glad to see such a wide variety of submissions from the entire campus. While it is a new School with a new building going up, we are one piece of a larger campus community and it is important to us to include that community in our program,” said Dr. Sara Campbell, dean of the School of Nursing.

According to Campbell, Lee’s new nursing simulators, known in the nursing community as “manikins,” provide opportunities to practice hands-on nursing techniques in the classroom through a variety of realistic patient scenarios.

Winners of the contest whose name ideas were chosen were awarded $20 in Burgundy Bucks, money redeemable at any dining location on Lee’s campus.
