SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich. (AP) — Lake Superior State University says it's received a $400,000 grant from the R.W. Considine Foundation to improve nursing education.

The school says the money will buy state-of-the-art, high-fidelity mannequins as part of a proposed new nursing simulation center in downtown Sault Ste. Marie.

The school says the nursing center is a project of the city, the university and War Memorial Hospital. It says the planned simulation center will let students and health care workers practice their skills on the equipment that responds kin the same way as human patients.
