Nursing Anne Simulator Press Release
Raising the Bar for Nursing Education - Laerdal Medical Introduces Nursing Anne Simulator
WAPPINGERS FALLS, NY, September 14, 2017 – The role and responsibilities within nursing have undergone profound changes within the last twenty-five years, resulting in a stronger emphasis on patient-centered care, diagnosis and assessment, and an improved transition from the classroom to clinical practice. To support the training of these core nursing competencies, today Laerdal Medical launched the Nursing Anne Simulator at the National League for Nursing (NLN) Summit in San Diego, CA.
The new Nursing Anne Simulator is a highly-realistic, female simulator designed to meet the training and curriculum requirements of nurse educators in nursing schools and in hospitals. The feature set of Nursing Anne Simulator promotes skills training and realistic clinical simulation practice, including:
- Realistic articulation and patient positioning
- Patient assessment & evaluation of patient consciousness
- Palpation of anatomical landmarks
- Auscultation of heart, lung, and bowel sounds
- Administration and management of medication/fluids
- Tetherless operation
Operated via a handheld SimPad®, SimPad® PLUS or a touchscreen Laerdal Learning Application (LLEAP) PC, nurse educators have increased flexibility when selecting the tools to support their learning objectives. Educators familiar with these operating systems will experience a seamless transition to the Nursing Anne Simulator platform.
“This new solution will allow nurse educators the ability to provide authentic learning experiences like never before. Based on the results of the National Council of State Boards of Nursing (NCSBN) study, organizations are preparing to replace more (up to 50%) clinical hours with high-quality simulation. Nursing Anne Simulator will fill a critical void in achieving this ambition. Laerdal remains committed to supporting nursing programs with reliable, purpose built tools, outstanding program support, and superior customer service in order to help them achieve their goals,” says David Johnson, President, Laerdal Medical, Americas.
