Karel de Grote University College 

Antwerp, Belgium 





About

Karel de Grote University College is an Applied Science and Arts higher educational institution. It provides professionals to both the local Flemish Region and globally with 1500 international students from 110, different countries. 

The Challenge

"We are convinced that simulation training prepares our students better for their clinicals. They will be able to use non-technical skills with the technical interventions in critical conditions."

- Rik Depauw, Nursing Lector 

The Solution: Providing opportunity and accessibility

Creating an environment for positive outcomes

At present, 1 out of 10 births around the world, come before term. 

And this number is only rising.2 

The program at Karel de Grote University College is preparing not only their learners but practicing staff to be ready. In the surrounding region of Flanders, they train 5, different NICU teams to evaluate the teamwork and communications as well as the neonatal outcome of the premature babies. 

With their own learners, they’re running teams through the Newborn Life Support (NLS) training. Since its launch at the turn of the century, the NLS has been transformational creating simulated opportunities for learners to “approach the management of a newborn infant requiring assistance during the first 10-20 minutes in a competent manner.”3  

Karel de Grote is further expanding training through the curriculum for the Bachelor programs in Midwifery and Nursing, respectively.  

"The students said that Billie provides an incomparable added value for training the skills."

- Nebahat Kalmis, Neonatolgical Educator 

The Results

"[Our focus] is on airway management, the difference between [full-term] and premature. This makes our use of Sim NewB and on Billie so important."

- Nebahat Kalmis, Neonatolgical Educator
