Laerdal Simulation & Innovation Lab A collaboration between Laerdal and NSNA
Limited spots are available and sign up will be released in the MidYear Guidebook app!
What to Expect? This space will feature a mixed modality simulation lab with a combination of virtual and manikin-based simulations and will provide you with evaluation data about what was learned in the sessions. Additionally, the space will showcase new, exciting product innovations, which we’re eager to co-develop with the nursing students who will eventually use them.
Our simulation labs will provide hands-on opportunities to practice your skills & challenge your clinical judgment across a range of modalities. In the learning sessions, you will be invited to test new ideas and prototypes being developed for the future of nursing education.
Simulations: RQI for Nursing Practice Session Come join Resuscitation Quality Improvement Partners (RQIP) in Laerdal Innovation Space and practice your CPR skills utilizing the RQI solution! You never know when you will need to use your CPR skills and maintaining competence of those skills can be challenging for all health care providers. The RQI Simulation Station and program will give attendees an opportunity to perform simulated skills, view real time outcomes and see how RQI improves the quality of CPR education.
Available: Thursday: 800-830am, 830-900am, 10-1030am, 1030-11am, 12-1230pm, 1230-1pm (2 Student Max per session) Friday: 9-930am, 930-1000am, 11-1130am, 1130-12pm, 1-130pm, 130-2pm (2 student max per session)
Manikin Simulation Sessions: Challenge yourself in caring for patients in a medical-surgical unit with your friends at NSNA. We will prepare students for simulation, run a short patient care scenario and lead students through a debrief about their experience. This is a great way to challenge yourself in a new environment and see some of the latest technology in simulation. This experience is intend- ed as a learning experience and all levels of students are welcome to join. We will work together to care for the patients and have a lot of fun as well!
Available: Thursday at 9-10am, 11am-12pm, 1pm-2pm (12 student max per session) Friday at 8-9am, 10-11am, 12-1pm (12 student max per session) Saturday 9-10am, 1030-1130am (12 student max per session)
Virtual Simulations: Grab a friend and challenge yourself to complete a screen-based virtual patient scenario of caring for a medical-surgical patient. All levels of students are welcome to experience this learning environment. You can complete the scenario as many times as you like and get feedback each time about how to improve your care for the patient. In this experience, you will also be some of the first students to provide feedback about the NextGen vSim program and be one of the first to test a new feature for developing clinical judgement.
Available: Thursday at 9-10am, 11am-12pm, 1pm-2pm (4 student max per session) Friday at 8-9am, 10-11am, 12-1pm (4 student max per session) Saturday 9-10am, 1030-1130am (4 student max per session)
Learning Sessions: Treating Multiple Patients in VR: Learning Potentials Laerdal and WK are currently promoting vrClinicals, a VR product that simulates a full day clinical in a virtual hospital, challenging students to use their clinical judgement skills to treat multiple patients, including prioritizing and delegating. In this session, students will get a taste of Laerdal's newest education solution vrClinicals before it is even released for purchasing. Come experience a portion of the full day clinical in a virtual hospital where we will challenge you to use your clinical judgement skills, treat multiple patients and engage your skills in prioritization and delegation of care. During this session students will not only experience the vrClinicals solution and provide patient care as a team but we are also seeking student feedback as we look ahead to how it could be improved for the future.
Available: Thursday 3:15 pm-4:15pm (20 students max per session) Friday 3 pm – 4pm (20 students max per session)
Empowering Practice Readiness: A Competency-Based Approach Step into an engaging session aimed at transforming nursing students into practice-ready professionals. As the demands on nurses grow, so does the gap in transition to practice. This interactive session is designed to help bridge that gap. We're introducing learner-centered activities that empower you to take charge of your learning journey. We want your feedback on how these strategies could serve you better and how data can be leveraged to enhance your readiness. Join us for this unique opportunity to shape your future in nursing and contribute to the evolution of nursing education. Available: Friday 4:30 pm – 5:30 pm (10 Student Max)
Product Testing Innovation through Peer-to-Peer Learning Experience and contribute to a new learning strategy that harnesses the power of peer-to-peer technology. Guided by each other, you'll navigate through patient care and interprofessional scenarios, honing your skills and building competence. Test out this innovative approach and provide your valuable input.
Available: Thursday: 1215pm-1pm (2 student max per session) Friday: 1115am-12pm (2 student max per session) Saturday 8am-845am (2 student max per session)
