The Simulation Learning System (SLS) integrates simulation technology into your medical-surgical nursing course by providing realistic scenarios and supportive learning resources that correspond to Black & Hawks: Medical-Surgical Nursing: Clinical Management for Positive Outcomes, 8th Edition. The SLS offers targeted reading assignments and critical thinking exercises to prepare you for the simulation experience; access to patient data with a shift report and fully-functional electronic medical record (EMR); post-simulation exercises including charting and documentation activities in the EMR, reflective journaling, and concept mapping; and review resources including animations, videos, and textbook references. Simulation with the SLS is a complete learning experience that bridges the gap between lecture and clinicals to prepare you for the real world of nursing. STUDENT ACCESS ONLY - INSTITUTIONAL LICENSE REQUIRED.
- Reading assignments from your medical-surgical nursing textbook focus study on relevant clinical concepts
- Pre-simulation exercises help students think critically about clinical problems that could occur during the simulation experience
- Fully-functional electronic medical record (EMR) allows students to reference important patient data—including history & physical, physician orders, and lab results—and input all relevant documentation during or after simulation
- Concept mapping allows students to create a plan of care that addresses the patient's health state
- Post-simulation journaling encourages students to reflect on and learn from their simulation experience
- Interdisciplinary communication provides practice in using the SBAR method to prepare a change-of-shift report for the oncoming nurse
- Multimedia resources including animations, skills videos, and audio clips offer review of physiologic processes and nursing procedures prior to and following simulation
