The clinical nursing judgment and diagnostic reasoning aspects of the i-Human Patients had the greatest impact on student learning and retention as evidenced by at 10-20 percent improvement on assignments and examinations.
White Paper: Examining the Values of Implementing Virtual Simulation (VS) into Graduate Nursing Curricula
by Hallie Bensinger, DNP, APN, FNP | November 10, 2021
Download the white paper to take a deep dive into the many ways in which virtual simulation, such as i-Human Patients by Kaplan, can help students in their transition to becoming nurse practitioners.

How can graduate nursing students gain crucial skills and experience as they are preparing for and actively participating in clinical placements? One solution is to use virtual simulation for clinical practice.
As educators, we must teach nursing students about technology at the bedside and engage the students with technology in the classroom to prepare them for the responsibilities of the nursing workforce.

Faculty have always been daunted by how to handle clinical make-up and remediation for missed clinical experiences and/or poor clinical performance. With the onset of COVID-19 and the limited time allowed in the hospital makes this dilemma even more challenging.

Nursing school looks very different now than it did this time last year. Many of the nursing programs I have been talking with are adapting and replacing the “old ways” of doing things with newer, more dynamic practices, especially when it comes to clinical placement. At i-Human Patients by Kaplan, we’re thinking through the same challenges and reimagining how we can best support students and institutions this school year. Together, we can shape the future of nursing education and move from a time of change and transition to a time of new stability, from the old ways of doing things to the new, digital normal.
