Set Your Learners Up For Success With A Variety Of Skill Building Courses In Multiple Environments
This unique suite of virtual clinicals provides a perfect mix of insight on leadership, communication, patient management, and delegation. Across the various tools supporting these topics, participants have the opportunity to immerse themselves in both clinic and home environments where they will practice patient interview skills, identify potential environmental, health and safety hazards, and build a care plan that they can support and rationalize. This provides multiple opportunities to practice psychosocial assessment and charting techniques before venturing into potentially risky environments. The situation that the learner will encounter allows them to draw on their knowledge of OB, pediatrics, underserved populations and more.
Sentinel City® and Sentinel Town®
Educators teaching capstone courses that integrate concepts of leadership, communication and patient management will find Sentinel City and Sentinel Town virtual simulations to be valuable and engaging. Sentinel City is Sentinel U’s flagship innovation and teaches community and population health, while Sentinel Town allows the learner to master assessment and intervention planning that will impact their communities.
Family Support and Home Assessments
When utilized in a capstone course, the Family Support and Home Assessments simulation provides learners the opportunity to practice psychosocial assessment and charting techniques before venturing into potentially risky environments. Learners immerse themselves in a home environment where they practice interview skills, identify potential environmental, health and safety hazards, and build a care plan that they can support and rationalize. The situation that the learner encounters allows them to draw on their knowledge of OB, pediatrics, underserved populations and more.
Nursing Quality Indicators®
In the nursing capstone setting, students must immerse themselves in environments that allow them to draw on their vast knowledge and apply various skills. Nursing Quality Indicators is a virtual clinical in which students evaluate 10 patients and practice using clinical judgment and making care decisions.
Patient Management and Delegation®
The nursing capstone has students draw upon and apply their knowledge in tasks such as patient assessment, care planning, charting and more. Patient Management and Delegation has learners step into the charge nurse role and practice their clinical judgment and decision-making skills related to setting acuities, scheduling, delegating and prioritizing patient care for 56 patients.
The Interprofessional Teams™ virtual clinical series is especially helpful in the capstone setting for learners who are sharpening their communication and collaboration skills. In this simulation, the learner will select five interprofessional team members, based on their scope of practice, to further manage and evaluate a patient. Next, the learner will observe the group collaboration process, recognize challenges and barriers within the team, and then guide the conversation by making decisions that result in positive impacts on the team and, ultimately, patient-centered care.
Prioritization of Care®
In a nursing program, the capstone is often what brings everything together. Students integrate concepts learned in the classroom and the clinic/home environment and evaluate how they will apply them in a real-world setting. The Prioritization of Care Hospital, Clinic and Specialty Series nursing scenarios help students build decision-making confidence by practicing clinical judgement skills and working through progressively more difficult intervention selection and prioritization assignments.
The nursing capstone is where students must blend all they have learned and bring everything together before they enter nursing practice. The Telehealth series helps prepare nurses with hands-on virtual experience in how to use clinical judgment and communication skills to care for medical-surgical, maternal/OB, pediatric and mental/behavioral health patients remotely using electronic data and telecommunications technology.
