Our Partners Driving Innovation in Nursing Education, Together
Wolters Kluwer, Laerdal® Medical, and the National League for Nursing (NLN) are proud to partner together to prepare today's students to become tomorrow's nurses.
Our unique partnerships have powered the development of innovative, evidence-based solutions that support active learning and empower students to think like nurses as they prepare to meet the challenges of nursing in today’s complex healthcare environments.
Lippincott CoursePoint+/vSim for Nursing.
Featuring the most trusted virtual simulations in nursing education, vSim for Nursing—integrated into Lippincott CoursePoint+ and co-developed by Wolters Kluwer and Laerdal Medical—includes patient-centered simulation scenarios from the NLN to create a full, interactive learning environment that promotes clinical judgment. Students encounter the same patients in both vSim for Nursing virtual simulations and Laerdal® Medical manikin-based patient simulators, allowing them to refine their prioritization and clinical decision-making skills before or after practicing their psychomotor skills in the sim lab.
Integrating EHR software with over 150 NLN patient scenarios and Laerdal manikin simulators, Lippincott DocuCare helps students master the skills of patient record interpretation, patient care, and follow-up documentation and includes links to Lippincott textbooks and eLearning content to improve clinical judgment. Lippincott DocuCare is the leading EHR designed by nurse educators for nursing education.
