After our last webinar on Medication Cabinets, Carts and EHRs, we realized that not only is there confusion about what each product does, but there is confusion regarding how to use any one of these products in a Nursing or Health simulation lab.

We have a few instructors who all came up with an excellent lab idea independently. It's really interesting when we hear from schools because so often people will arrive at similar use-cases without interacting with each other at all. This activity was one of those times. A modified version adapted from each instructor's idea is below:

Demographics of Disease and How it Can Effect Your Clinical Experience

We found this fascinating infographic from University of Florida outlining the demographics of different diseases in the US. Examining this from a Nurse Education standpoint, we think it's fascinating how different regions may provide extremely different clinical experiences for students. For example, students in North Carolina, South Carolina and Georgia will probably work with more Heart Disease and Stroke patients than their northern counterparts. On the other hand, a student working in California facilities is more likely to encounter HIV/AIDS patients.

Anyone who has worked in Nursing education knows the problem: Clinical sites are hard to find, good clinical instructors are expensive and students' clinical experiences vary greatly. We've tried to supplement clinical hours with increased time in the Simulation Lab but for those schools who adhere strictly to evidence based learning, there was no definitive research proving Simulation hours are as valuable as Clinical ones.
