Virtual simulation for your course | Unparalleled clinical preparation in nursing education

Easy to use and fully integrated with Lippincott® CoursePoint+, vSim® for Nursing instills the skills for clinical success through realistic patient encounters based on actual nursing scenarios students will encounter in practice in the areas of Fundamentals, Medical-Surgical, Maternity, Pediatric, Gerontology, Pharmacology, Health Assessment and Mental Health.

Real-world practice in patient-centered care

vSim’s interactive virtual patient simulations are based on scenarios also included in your Lippincott® nursing textbooks, allowing students to get to know these virtual patients as their cases progress and evolve - just like real-world nurse-patient interaction.

Realistic clinical experience - available anytime, anywhere

vSim delivers instant online access to crucial hands-on practice, immersing students in realistic patient interaction from the safety of your classroom - or wherever and whenever your students prefer to learn.

Personalized learning and precise remediation

By recording student interactions throughout its virtual simulations, vSim makes it easy to measure each student’s success, pinpoint specific weaknesses and deliver instant remediation through built-in Lippincott Advisor® and Lippincott® Procedures - the same evidence-based point-of-care content used in hospitals nationwide.

True-to-life clinical experience at your control

With comprehensive patient scenarios available throughout your curriculum, vSim helps you deliver the real-world experience students need to transition to practice while honing the clinical judgment, competence and confidence they’ll rely on throughout their careers.

“It’s a really great experience in making decisions under patients’ real life changes and it’s really the closest thing we’ve had in lab to real-life clinical experience.”
