Virtual simulation is a significant part of the nursing curriculum today and is a valuable educational tool. The interactive, immersive experiences in virtual simulations, like i-Human Patients by Kaplan, support the acquisition of clinical skills, developing clinical judgment, and strengthening decision-making abilities.
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.

Unlike reading assignments or listening to narrated lectures, virtual patient simulation provides for students to actively participate in the NP role. Cases are developed from real patients by expert clinicians. The evolving case compels students into the decision-making process of a clinician.

One important aspect of embracing technology as clinical educators is that the immediate grading/presentation of each decision the student makes gives us a window into their thought process, thereby allowing us to better understand where we can provide guidance.
White Paper: Examining the Values of Implementing Virtual Simulation (VS) into Undergraduate Nursing Curricula

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.

In a time when healthcare education has been forced from a hands-on, on-campus model to a 100% virtual environment, we have activated online learning tools across our organization to ensure continuity of education for future doctors, nurses, and nurse practitioners.

Clinical simulation used to be solely known as practicing on a mannequin in a simulation lab. In recent years, clinical simulation has evolved to encompass so much more and has become a vital and innovative addition to undergraduate nursing curricula.
