Virtual Simulation for Organizations & Instructors

Courses & Learning Solutions

What is virtual simulation in nursing?

Virtual nursing simulations are a type of clinical experience where interactions with patients are performed virtually on a computer or other digital learning environment, in ways that parallel real-world engagement.  
Simulation provides learners with a comprehensive and repeatable hands-on learning experience. This encounter allows them to practice assessment, diagnosis, and clinical procedures in a simulated space. In this immersive setting, learners perfect their skills and build confidence in a safe setting.
