Laerdal Simulation & Innovation Lab A collaboration between Laerdal and NSNA
What to Expect? In this simulation and innovation space we invite students to practice their skills, experience a combination of virtual and manikin-based simulations and contribute to new and exciting product innovations.
Join us and gain valuable insights about your own nursing competencies while contributing to the future of nursing education.
Simulations: Manikin Simulation Sessions: Challenge yourself in caring for patients with your friends at NSNA. We will prepare students for simulation, run a short patient care scenario and lead students through a debrief about their experience. This is a great way to challenge yourself in a new environment and see some of the latest technology in simulation. This experience is intended as a learning experience and all levels of students are welcome to join. We will work together to care for the patients and have a lot of fun as well!
Virtual Simulations: Grab a friend and challenge yourself to complete a screen-based virtual patient scenario. All levels of students are welcome to experience this learning environment. You can complete the scenario as many times as you like and get feedback each time about how to improve your care for the patient. In this experience, you will also be some of the first students to provide feedback about the NextGen vSim program and be one of the first to test a new feature for developing clinical judgement.
Learning Sessions: Simulation with VR: Treating Multiple Patients Laerdal and WK are currently promoting vrClinicals, a VR product that simulates a full day clinical in a virtual hospital, challenging students to use their clinical judgement skills to treat multiple patients, including prioritizing and delegating. In this session, students will get a taste of Laerdal's newest education solution vrClinicals before it is even released for purchasing. Come experience a portion of the full day clinical in a virtual hospital where we will challenge you to use your clinical judgement skills, treat multiple patients and engage your skills in prioritization and delegation of care. During this session students will not only experience the vrClinicals solution and provide patient care as a team, but we are also seeking student feedback as we look ahead to how it could be improved for the future.
