When learners immerse themselves in Sentinel Town®, they will master assessment and intervention planning that will impact their communities. The healthcare challenges faced by the underserved, aging, and sometimes poor community members in this virtual town highlight distinct differences faced by population health nurses working in cities. Sentinel Town allows faculty members to choose from a variety of assignments to drive desired learning outcomes; this is a teaching tool designed for both pre-licensure (ADN and BSN) and post-licensure (RN-BSN) programs and offers many learners the chance to study Community or Population Health Nursing in an environment that they would typically not be able to access. It’s not uncommon for learners to gain 30 or more hours of work in this simulation filled with diverse citizens and key informants.
Each trip into Sentinel Town is a unique adventure. Faculty can choose from a variety of assignments to drive desired learning outcomes. Students have the opportunity to practice dealing with a health environment, without leaving home. Like all our products, Sentinel Town gives nurse educators a supplemental teaching tool for nursing education texts at pre-licensure (ADN and BSN), and post-licensure (RN-BSN) programs.
