One of the most complete nursing education learning systems available, Virtual Clinical Excursions is an interactive print and online workbook that guides you through a virtual hospital setting where the patients are real and their conditions are constantly changing. By immersing yourself in a realistic, yet safe, nursing environment, VCE allows you to get acclimated to the routine and rigors of the average clinical rotation where you can conduct a complete assessment of a patient and set priorities for care, collect data, analyze and interpret data, prepare and administer medications, and reach conclusions about complex problems. Each lesson ties together reading assignments found in your Essentials for Nursing Practice text and activities based on "visiting" the patients in the hospital — providing a perfect environment to "practice" what you are learning.


Duration for access to this product, which may be at the discretion of your institution, is up to 36 months. Elsevier reserves the right to restrict or remove access due to changes in product portfolio or other market conditions.
