EHR Simulation Education: We Need More of It
EHR simulation (also known as EMR simulation, for “electronic medical record”) opportunities in nursing school are key to preparing today’s nursing students for the demands they will face in the workplace. A simulated EHR experience allows instructors to manage and develop patient scenarios for nurses in a more realistic way, creating a more successful learning environment. There has been an increased use of manikin-based EHR/EMR simulation, but many nursing school graduates are still entering the workforce with minimal simulated EHR experience, leading healthcare facilities to deal with increased errors, training costs, and lengthier transition periods for making good new nurses great.
Lippincott DocuCare is the solution. The most trusted EHR in nursing education, Lippincott DocuCare enhances clinical learning by contextualizing realistic patient scenarios for nurses with hands-on documentation, all in an easy-to-use program.
Nursing Simulation Scenarios: Key to Effective Patient Care
Nurses not only need technical competencies to succeed on the job, but they also need the critical thinking skills to provide safe, effective care. They gain those skills by utilizing nursing simulation scenarios. Lippincott DocuCare includes more than 200 assignable, true-to-life patient scenarios for nurses covering a wide range of diagnoses and demographics—from medical-surgical to mental health to maternal-pediatric and beyond—appropriate for all levels of nursing. For unmatched authenticity, numerous evidence-based patient records developed jointly with the National League for Nursing (NLN) provide a seamless clinical learning experience across vSim for Nursing and Laerdal Medical nursing simulation scenarios. Or, you can create your own patient scenarios.
