Leading the Virtual Nursing Simulation Industry

To expedite the success of your nursing learner, Sentinel U® delivers a full portfolio of healthcare simulations that reflect real-world situations faced by today’s nurses. Our gamified and animated approach to simulation development gives your learners multiple modalities where critical thinking and nursing care scenarios can be practiced repeatedly. Virtual simulations are cost-effective and convenient compared to traditional in-person clinicals and manikins. See how our virtual nursing simulations can enhance your curriculum or training programs.

Advantages of Incorporating Sentinel U® Into Your Curriculum

In-person ClinicalsSentinel U
Skills DevelopmentWaiting for a turn and passively watching someone else.Practice anywhere, anytime in engaging real-world simulated environments.
CostHigh cost of lab space, equipment, consumables, staff, and maintenance.No space requirements, staff, manikins, or special equipment required.
ConvenienceIn-person lab time is limited, hard to schedule and limits practice time.Access anytime and anywhere. Provides deliberate practice. Assignments and grading rubrics provided. Large groups easily accommodated.
FeedbackInstructor feedback is primarily subjective. Instructors might have limited bandwidth to provide feedback for every student.Objective, real time remediation. Performance feedback for both students and faculty provided through comprehensive dashboards.
ConfidenceStudents lack confidence when performing a procedure for the first time in a clinical or lab setting.Students who practice with virtual nursing simulations beforehand have higher confidence when performing a new procedure in a clinical or lab setting.
