Former U.S. Representative for Texas, Solomon Ortiz, once stated “Education is the key to success in life, and teachers make a lasting impact in the lives of their students.” For my capstone project, my team and I chose to develop an application for CBU’s School of Nursing.

The pricing of reliable and effective hospital simulation software makes for challenging
