Wolters Kluwer, Health and Laerdal Medical announce next generation of vSim® for Nursing -

Wolters Kluwer, Health and Laerdal Medical have announced the next generation of vSim® for Nursing to improve the fidelity of virtual simulation, develop practice-ready nurses with strong clinical judgment skills, and help address practice readiness gaps due to limited clinical training sites. vSim for Nursing provides real-world, evidence-based scenarios written by the National League for Nursing that allow nursing students to actively develop their clinical judgment, competence, and confidence.

Using the next generation of vSim for Nursing, students are immersed in a safe, dynamic environment with diverse patients and an enhanced 3D design. Mirroring real clinical practice, students learn to recognize and analyse cues - such as pain, paleness, urticaria - effectively to take action and respond to unfolding visual and audio responses from the patient to improve clinical reasoning skills. vSim also focuses on elevating students’ inter-professional communication skills through the new situation, background, assessment, and recommendation (SBAR) feature which produces an SBAR score based on the students’ report.

In 2014, vSim was introduced as the first virtual simulation solution for nursing education as part of Lippincott® CoursePoint+. Studies show 98% of students using vSim recommended it for future use. The next-generation online learning solution will be available for demonstration at the hybrid International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare Conference (Booth #126) taking place from January 15-19, 2022.

vSim for Nursing is available now for Fundamentals and Medical-Surgical Nursing as a standalone product or integrated as part of Lippincott CoursePoint+, giving nursing students the necessary tools to become clinically competent nurses. Additional course areas will be added throughout 2022.
