Meet SimMan 3G, Penn Nursing’s newest simulator on the block! A resident manikin since December 2019, 3G (better known as Hector) comes from a long line of renowned SimMen. You may even recognize his great-grandfather, SimMan Classic, from his work at Penn in decades past.
“While I was in college in my senior year of nursing school, I was involved in a very emotionally and physically violent relationship. I don’t mean a threat or a slap. I mean having my head repeatedly bashed into a sliding glass door until it broke, and then being pushed out of a car going 60 miles per hour into the middle of a busy highway in Florida. Wow, that sounds awful. Just writing it is hard. But it was an important, transformative event in my life.”
