To prepare the next generation of nurses for the challenges of real-world practice and help address a lack of simulation content for advanced medical-surgical and critical care scenarios, Wolters Kluwer, Health and Laerdal Medical launched vSim® for Nursing Advanced Medical-Surgical/Critical Care. The latest course area from the vSim for Nursing solution offers a comprehensive, immersive experience that challenges students to think through complex scenarios they may not fully experience in clinical rotations, then take the appropriate action.
Co-developed by Laerdal Medical and Wolters Kluwer, vSim for Nursing provides realistic, evidence-based scenarios written by the National League for Nursing, with built-in point-of-care solutions for reference and remediation.
Delivering needed exposure to complex clinical cases
The vSim for Nursing Advanced Medical-Surgical/Critical Care course offers students needed exposure to a wide array of populations, themes, and environments, such as the representation of nonbinary patients. Students experience caring for patients with comorbidities, including obesity and a secondary COVID-19 diagnosis. Students also learn about transmission-based safety precautions through an interactive mini-game. By focusing on challenging cases, the new course depicts complex clinical situations in a safe, highly realistic clinical environment and empowers nursing students to hone their clinical judgment skills.
