Innovation in Nursing Simulation
Nursing schools first adopted simulation to teach fundamental patient care and assessment skills. Today, they are creating complex, interdisciplinary scenarios mirror real-life and involve students from different specialties. Meanwhile, hospitals are saving time and reducing turnover by using simulation for nurse onboarding, assessment and retraining for new units. With a newly updated Program for Nursing Curriculum Integration (PNCI v5), more than 250 evidence-based training scenarios, and state-of-the-art patient simulation, CAE Healthcare allows both learners and professionals to suspend disbelief and immerse themselves in training that challenges their knowledge, abilities and critical thinking.

We have actually published articles about this.”

In the final scene, the team zips the teenager into a body bag and wheels him away.
