What are Curriculum Integration Guides ?

The guide provides strategies for use of vSim® for Nursing in programs across all types of nursing education. It provides faculty with ideas to integrate vSim into existing curricula and offers ways to develop and/or enhance current teaching strategies. The guide is based on data collected from faculty who participated in pilot testing of vSim for Nursing | Medical-Surgical during spring 2014 and who submitted feedback to the National League for Nursing. These faculty members provide instruction in a wide array of classroom, clinical, lab, and simulation settings.
