NURSING SCHOOLS: We Can Support Your Transition to Online Classes

To protect students, faculty and staff and to maintain social distancing, many schools are choosing to move their instruction online.  American Sentinel has been building digital tools and delivering online education to nurses and healthcare professionals for many years, and we have developed several virtual clinical simulations and scenarios through our division, Healthcare Learning Innovations.

In the chance that COVID-19 is affecting the clinical hours available to your students, or if you need alternative online learning activities, we offer some affordable virtual clinical simulations and scenarios.

Additionally, we will donate 25% of virtual simulation purchases to The Center for Disaster Philanthropy – CDP COVID-19 Response Fund.

For ADN, BSN and RN-BSN nursing courses

During these challenging times, we want to offer help to other learning institutions that need guidance supporting students with online classes. If you have questions about transitioning to an online environment, or teaching in an online environment, please email our online learning expert, Dr. William Tammone.

“What’s been really beneficial for me is that I know exactly what they are doing and seeing, and I’m able to understand if they are meeting that week’s learning objectives. The proof is in the work they turn in each week,” Reinisch says. The 23 assignments, range of skill categories, 17 different characters and requirement to provide rationale for responses add up to an effective learning experience.”

“The simulation prompts them to support their choices with evidence-based practice research, to bring their own perspective to the situations and use critical thinking skills to make decisions in developing the patient’s plan of care.”

Cynthia Carter, Assistant Professor of Nursing, Georgia Highlands College


With so many schools transitioning to online learning, we have created some resources to help nurse educators make a transition from classroom-based teaching to online instruction.
