The authentic learning spaces, the SPACE and the clinical laboratories are situated in the Benedictus Kok Building, where Nursing students are exposed to skills and standardised patient, medium- and hi-fidelity simulation and task trainers. In standardised patients the school makes use of drama students to take on the role of patients.
