Sentinel City®, our flagship innovation, is an online learning platform that teaches community and population health through an engaging and rewarding screen-based virtual experience. Students practice critical thinking, observation and care planning in a risk-free environment. Originally developed to teach nursing students how to conduct windshield surveys, Sentinel City now includes 30 assignments and our Family Support and Home Assessment virtual clinical scenario.
Many clients map this simulation to their Community or Population Health Nursing courses, and while the hours and activities within the model are almost limitless, most clients use Sentinel City to earn about 30 hours for each of their learners.
Faculty members enjoy the variety that comes with the Assignment Catalog; this virtual city can cover anything from community assessments and infection prevention and control issues to natural disasters and population-focused interventions.
