Nursing Simulation Scenarios Allow Students to Provide Real Patient Care

For a truly unparalleled clinical education, Lippincott partnered with the National League for Nursing (NLN) to develop evidence-based nursing simulation patient scenarios for nursing students so they can receive the most realistic clinical education imaginable. This allows students to hone their critical thinking and prioritization skills treating the virtual patient in vSim for Nursing, chart the patient's record in Lippincott DocuCare, and – if your program also uses Laerdal Medical manikins – refine their skills in the sim lab while caring for the same patient.
