The University of St. Thomas embraces diversity, inclusion, and equal opportunity for all. Our convictions of dignity, diversity and personal attention call us to embody and champion a diverse, equitable and inclusive environment. The University is an Equal Employment Opportunity Employer (EOE). All qualified applicants will receive consideration for employment without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, disability, age, status as a protected veteran, or other protected characteristic. We are committed to building a skilled team that represents a variety of backgrounds and perspectives. This commitment is consistent with our mission: Inspired by Catholic intellectual tradition, the University of St. Thomas educates students to be morally responsible leaders who think critically, act wisely, and work skillfully to advance the common good. A successful candidate will possess a commitment to the ideals of this mission.



The terms standardized patient, simulated patient, and simulated participant (SP) may be used interchangeably and refer to a person trained to realistically portray a patient, client, family member or health care professional for training pre-licensure nursing students. An SP is an individual who has been coached to recreate the personality, medical history, physical findings, and emotional structure and communication style of an individual accurately and consistently at a specific point in time/treatment. SPs do not disclose their own personal medical history, they will answer questions based on the details of the simulated case that is provided.


Under the supervision of the Assistant Director of Nursing Simulation Education and the direction of the Simulation Operations Specialist, and/or Susan S. Morrison School of Nursing faculty, the SP provides the opportunity for nursing students to develop, practice, and enhance therapeutic communication, interviewing, physical examination, and non-invasive technical skills. The basic responsibility of a SP is to simulate medical scenarios or cases with learners in experiential education and assessment contexts.



1. Memorizes scenario patient information (e.g., history, symptoms, behavior) and consistently portrays the “patient” in the same manner with different learners.

2. Portrays a variety of patient scenarios to meet the program learning outcomes of the Susan S. Morrison School of Nursing.

3. Maintains confidentiality of information related to educational materials such as cases, learner behaviors, and evaluation feedback.

4. Participates in healthcare related interviews, assessments, and non-invasive technical procedures that may include wearing a patient gown, while on camera and/or observed live through video stream. Does not involve invasive examinations, procedures or nudity.

5. Accept ongoing feedback from supervisor/trainer/peers and incorporate into case simulation.

6. Demonstrate a professional demeanor consistent with a member of the Susan S. Morrison School of Nursing.

Training and/or experience in theatre, film, education, communication, or behavioral sciences is beneficial, but not required.



  • The pay-rate for this position is $20.00 an hour. The role is not benefits eligible.
  • The shifts we will have available will be some time Monday through Friday between 0800-1800. The days and hours will vary. Some days it might just be for an hour, others maybe for four.
  • This is an on-call position with no set schedule. The hiring manager will contact you when there is an open shift and you can determine if the opportunity fits into your schedule.
  • The work will almost exclusively be performed on-campus at our St. Paul, MN location; due to tax implications, we require all individuals hired reside and perform the work in Minnesota.
