and implementing actions within several dimensions, including:
Safety Measures – Practice safe procedures
Communication – Interact with the patient through
questions that result in text and audio responses
Assessments – Conduct specific physical assessments
Interventions – Take action with the patient to improve
their health status
Drugs & IV Management – Administer medications
according to provider orders
Tests & Diagnostics – Perform lab or diagnostic tests to
support clinical decisions

pre-simulation and post-simulation quiz data and student
feedback logs.

Unique, personalized learning
vSim for Nursing allows each student to have a different
experience with the patient. By recording student interactions
throughout the patient care scenario, a personalized feedback
log is generated, customized to the user experience. Each time
students repeat the scenario, they will receive a personal feedback
log outlining their clinical reasoning decisions.
