Virtual Simulation for Organizations & Instructors
Courses & Learning Solutions
What is virtual simulation in nursing?
Virtual nursing simulations are a type of clinical experience where interactions with patients are performed virtually on a computer or other digital learning environment, in ways that parallel real-world engagement.
Simulation provides learners with a comprehensive and repeatable hands-on learning experience. This encounter allows them to practice assessment, diagnosis, and clinical procedures in a simulated space. In this immersive setting, learners perfect their skills and build confidence in a safe setting.
Virtual Simulation Solutions for Nursing
Laerdal, Wolters Kluwer, and the National League for Nursing have teamed up to create vrClinicals for Nursing, a unique VR solution that immerses your students in a realistic, busy hospital to develop their multi-patient prioritization and clinical judgment skills.
Experience the continuous unfolding experience with multiple patients, in scenarios focusing on prioritization across the ward, give and receive SBAR, benefit from measurable feedback, self-debrief, and guided reflections.
This solution also helps reduce the number of instructors and coordinators needed to run complex cases, while ensuring a higher throughput.
