Tech Improvement: Educating Students through Clinical Simulation

FNU has purchased nine iPads to use in clinical simulations during this training period. The devices will be loaded with apps that will mimic heart and lung sounds, show radiography, and provide video for protocols and common procedures. Additionally they will store documents and images related to simulated patient cases. These resources will help to make the clinical scenarios more realistic for our nurse practitioner students. A Mac computer is needed to more efficiently manage all nine iPads.
