NURSING SCHOOLS: We Can Support Your Transition to Online Classes

An unprecedented number of schools and nursing education programs have moved their instruction online this year. While online education and virtual clinicals may be the wave of the future, American Sentinel has been building online learning resources and virtual simulations for years through our division, Sentinel U™.

If you are challenged with finding clinical hours for your students or need alternative online learning activities to enhance your curriculum, consider our 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

Virtual Clinical Scenarios  (learners spend about 3-5 hours within each product)

  • Commonly used in Med Surg, PEDs, Mental Health, Leadership, Quality / Outcomes & Capstone Courses 
  • Students use critical thinking and judgment and receive instant feedback with rationale
  • Students master acuity assessment, care prioritization, and patient management and delegation

For community and population health nursing courses

Virtual Clinical Simulations (learners can spend only a few hours or up to 30-40 hours within these simulations)

  • 40+ easily implemented assignments and grading rubrics aligned with AACN BSN Essentials
  • Exposure to a significant variety of ethnic and socioeconomical backgrounds
  • Life-like practice experience, any time, anywhere

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.
