Nursing Anne Simulator – Geriatric

Helping you train for geriatric patient care

Today’s nurses require the necessary clinical and communication skills to handle the uncertainties, complications, and complexities of geriatric nursing realities. The Nursing Anne Simulator Geriatric add-on modules increase simulation fidelity to maximize training outcomes.

The geriatric module is an add-on for Nursing Anne Simulator.

Investing in simulation fidelity

Nursing Anne Simulator’s Geriatric Essentials Kit can simply be added to a Nursing Anne Simulator (Medium) – creating a whole new patient demographic to train for.

The Kit includes the following components:

  • Aged front skin
  • Aged back skin
  • Gray-colored hair wig

“The AACN reports that by the year 2030, nearly 20 percent of Americans will be age 65 and over. In addition, older adults represent half of all hospital stays, nearly two-thirds of all ambulatory adult primary care visits and almost three-quarters of all home care visits. Taking these statistics into consideration, geriatric nursing careers will expand significantly over the coming decades. In hospitals and nursing care facilities, nurses can expect an increase in employment of 22 and 20 percent, respectively.”

Cases on Laerdal Scenario Cloud

A variety of scenarios available on the Laerdal Scenario Cloud mirror the same patient cases from vSim for Nursing.

The scenarios originate from The ACES Unfolding Cases (Advancing Care Excellence for Seniors) and are developed for pre-licensure nursing programs with gerontological focus and are specifically designed to advance the care of older adults through simulation experiences that will help students understand the complex needs of older adults.

More Options for Respiratory Care Training
