From Clinical Make-up to Exam Remediation to Clinical Judgment in every lecture, NurseThink® vClinical contains over 450 patient assignments requiring high level nursing care. This Next Gen Learning tool is powered by Swift River and allows students to study and learn while virtually standing next to a patient in every class in the curriculum.
vClinical is an online virtual clinical program designed to help students master their skills of prioritization, delegation, and sequential thinking without the requirement of being onsite—or even having to download software.
Virtual clinicals provide students with a variety of experiences across the curriculum. Immersion learning has been shown to increase clinical judgment and decision making skills. Our team can help you provide meaningful virtual experiences that facilitate clinical-based learning and understanding of clinical concepts.
The vClinical suite was developed to give students the benefit of nursing experience no matter what they are studying. Each virtual clinical provides faculty and students with instant feedback as well as cumulative composite scores and recorded times. This Next Gen approach to learning and assessment is very powerful as learners collaborate and use game-based competition to become the best nurses they can be while providing faculty with just-in-time assessment data across the curriculum.
Grading the vClinicals by Swift River should be done via whatever mechanism is usually used to assess clinical, simulation, and other learning activities in your curriculum.
Building an online clinical day depends on the level of the students, course/program outcomes, and the amount of time dictated for that day of clinical.
Here are resources and references that can help you and your team make decisions related to use of the vClinicals for clinical/simulation replacement and/or for creating curricular threads of clinical judgment.
