Nursing & Patient Care

Nursing Anne Simulator

Designed and built for nursing education, from basic assessment to advanced practice. 

Designed based on input from leading nursing educators from around the world, this engaging and robust platform enables nurses to practice a wide range of competencies both as a skills trainer and as a highly realistic female simulator.  Learners can safely and realistically practice core nursing skills from basic assessments and critical thinking to advanced interventions. 

Already using a Nursing Anne?

Nursing Anne has been and will continue to be a reliable, trusted training tool for nursing education. Depending on your training objectives or curriculum, you may require a higher fidelity solution that offers additional training opportunities.  Nursing Anne Simulator is the perfect simulator to bridge the gap from low fidelity into higher fidelity simulations for nursing. Nursing Anne Simulator can be used as a skills proficiency manikin and as a full body, female simulator allowing students and nursing professionals the ability to practice core skills, enhance clinical competence, and experience realistic encounters with patient populations that will prepare them to provide the highest level of care.  Adding Nursing Anne Simulator to your existing simulation program will allow you to take your training to the next level.

Operation and Debriefing Options

Whether using SimPad PLUS or a LLEAP PC to run your simulation, the software is easy and efficient to use for scenario based training. The intuitive operating platforms provide flexible management of patient parameters, integrated data and video capture, as well as simulated patient monitoring capabilities. Choose the operating systems that works best for your training needs.

Already using SimPad System, SimPad PLUS System, or LLEAP? That makes it even easier to integrate Nursing Anne Simulator into your existing simulation program.  Nursing Anne Simulator is compatible with these Laerdal operating systems; you will need to do a free software update to ensure compatibility.

From simulation novices to sophisticated developers, SimCenter has the tools and services to help users realise their full potential. Visit to learn how to optimise your simulation training.

Simulation training is more than a manikin

At Laerdal we believe that successful simulation education is about more than just providing our customers with a high-fidelity manikin. That's why we provide a wide range of supporting products and services, such as scenarios, video debriefing, technical services and educational support through on- and off-site courses.
