UbiSim, designed exclusively for nursing, is a cutting-edge virtual reality training platform. It strictly adheres to the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning (INACSL) Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice (HSSOBP).
These standards ensure top-quality patient simulation activities, creating safe and effective learning environments. With UbiSim, users benefit from technologically advanced simulations that are pedagogically robust for nursing education.
Overview: INACSL HSSOBP & UbiSim
- UbiSim's nursing educators prioritize their professional growth by attending and hosting webinars, publishing content, and engaging on social media, and monitoring feedback from learners and nurse educators.
- Regular peer feedback ensures they remain updated with the latest skills and knowledge.
- Expert nurse educators craft UbiSim's preparation activities, covering learning objectives, patient reports, EHR documents, and relevant medical details.
- UbiSim briefings set a psychologically safe tone, clarify roles, and provide tutorials for the VR setup.
- UbiSim's seasoned nurse educators, backed by extensive clinical knowledge, use evidence-based standards to create scenarios.
- Every scenario aligns with the NCLEX Test Plan, Next Generation NCLEX, and AACN Essentials.
- Scenarios come with clear, measurable objectives available to learners in advance.
- Each patient is equipped with a detailed background and cues to enhance realism.
- High fidelity is achieved through lifelike visuals and authentic interactions, strengthening the emotional connection between the learner and the patient.
- Before release, each scenario undergoes a rigorous peer review and pilot testing.
- The intuitive UbiSim Editor pre-defines patient details, ensuring the scenario flows as designed.
- Pre-recorded dialogues ensure accuracy and alignment with learning goals.
- Comprehensive pre-briefing and debriefing processes are standard for every scenario.
- After each simulation, debriefing covers session feedback, reflection prompts, a post-simulation quiz, and a case study.
