Not only have we talked to each type of school, but we have all varieties of instructors and schools using EHR Tutor in effective, interesting ways. So just because your school does things a little bit different, doesn't mean your students can't benefit from the latest technology. Here's how:

Academic EHRs aren't just for the Sim Lab! Learn how to use an EHR system in the classroom to encourage critical thinking and help cement tricky concepts for students. 


Diane Yeager, Founder of FreeNurseTutor.com & EHR Tutor, will be discussing several examples of how to use an EHR in the classroom using a stroke and diabetes patient scenario. 

Because this webinar is open to any instructors who are considering or currently using any Academic EHR System, we ask that you hold any questions about our system, EHR Tutor, until after the initial 20 minute example lesson plan.
