Professional Nursing Series™ Virtual Simulations

Give your learners a standardized, realistic, and immersive virtual experience to stay current with practice trends, refine clinical judgment, and strengthen decision-making skills. Learners can earn 12 CEs. Learners will review patient information, inquiries, physical assessments, and updates for each of their patients individually within each section of the scenarios, and will be challenged to provide a rationale for their clinical decisions for each of the five patients in six unique modalities:

  • Surgical Inpatient – 2 contact hours
  • Surgical Outpatient – 2 contact hours
  • Medical Care – 2 contact hours
  • Critical Care – 2 contact hours
  • Medical Surgical Care – 2 contact hours
  • Intensive Care – 2 contact hours

All virtual nursing simulation programs are developed by nursing educators and aligned with specialty organization competencies such as American Academy of Ambulatory Care Nurses, American Heart Association, Academy of Medical-Surgical Nurses and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Additionally, our Professional Nursing Series™ aligns with Magnet Model Components in Exemplary Professional Practice, Structural Empowerment, and Empirical Outcomes.
