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.
Integrate vClinical Into Your Existing Courses
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.
vClinicals are based on:
- Clinical Judgment Model (CJM) - NCSBN.org
- Kiili’s Experiential Gaming Model
- Experiential Learning Model - David Kolb
In other words, the student:
- Is presented with realistic client(s), including symptoms, brief medical history, and vital signs in context.
- Reviews all the relevant information and analyzes/prioritizes cues.
- Takes action (prioritization, delegation, and assignment).
- Experiences learning with time pressure (CJM).
- Receives immediate feedback on the accuracy and appropriateness of their decisions.
- Continuously engages a feedback loop for professional growth.

Grading & Scoring vClinicals
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
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.
