Medical-Surgical Digital Clinical Experiences, 1st Edition
Shadow Health’s Digital Clinical Experiences™ for Medical-Surgical Nursing provide state-of-the-art simulations that put the patient at the forefront of the learning experience. Students interact with a diverse cast of virtual patients that present with a wide range of health conditions — all in a safe, standardized environment. Conversation-based learning allows students to engage with patients using their own words to gather subjective data and practice therapeutic communication. Performance assessment tools provide valid, reliable, and immediate insight into students’ clinical reasoning abilities and level of proficiency. These meaningful interactions help students gain valuable experience in practical application and patient-centered communication, empowering them to improve patient outcomes in their clinical practice.

Their health histories and current concerns are designed to support your mastery of nursing principles in a wide spectrum of medical situations.
