Part of the Prioritization of Care® Specialty Series, this virtual clinical presents the learner with a variety of adult pre-operative and post-operative patients experiencing complications or recovering from a complex surgery. Some of these patients require inpatient surgical care, while others are appropriate for outpatient surgical care. The learner must use clinical judgment skills to decide if their care should be managed in the hospital or outpatient surgical services. Then the learners prioritize the order in which the five patients should receive care and implement individualized nursing interventions. This virtual clinical fosters critical thinking and builds confidence for students and practicing nurses in a clinical setting.
This clinical comes with Surgical or Rehab setting options and includes a variety of patient conditions such as trauma care, arthroscopy, traumatic brain injury, s/p mitral valve replacement, post-operative complications and pseudoaneurysm.
