Critical thinking skills are key to becoming an effective practitioner of Population Health. Our Population and Community Health virtual simulations provide unique scenarios for learning and testing those critical thinking skills in diverse and true-to-the-world virtual simulations. In fact, Sentinel U® was born from challenges Population Health nursing students were facing with accessibility and safety.
Our combination of scenarios provides a simulated neighborhood in a crowded city, a town in a remote area of the US and a single parent home where students will practice interview skills, identify potential environmental, health and safety hazards, and build a care plan that they can support and rationalize. This provides students the opportunity to practice psychosocial assessment and charting techniques before venturing into potentially risky environments. Our Community and Population Health solution provide hours of diverse experiences for learning or testing Population and Community Health skill sets. These virtual clinicals also come with rubrics, faculty dashboards, and multiple learning activities that seamlessly integrate into your program.
Whether you’re looking to provide a meaningful clinical experience, teach more effectively, sharpen your skills on your own time, or provide your staff with an interactive way to build confidence, we have “virtually” endless possibilities.
Sentinel City® and Sentinel Town®
To become an effective practitioner of population and community health, students must learn to test their critical thinking skills in diverse and true-to-the-world virtual scenarios. Sentinel City® and Sentinel Town® virtual simulations allow nursing students to practice in a risk-free learning environment, doing windshield surveys and other assignments and mastering assessment and intervention planning.
Family Support and Home Assessments®
Students must learn to care for patients in urban and rural settings as well as in home health environments. Becoming an effective population/community health provider requires a unique set of skills and the Family Support and Home Assessment® virtual clinical will help students learn how to assess the physical and mental health of patients in potentially risk home environments.
