Virtual Nursing Simulation: OpenRN
Scenario 1: Cardiac Med Administration
In a long-term care room, students must obtain vitals and appropriately administer cardiac medications with different patient conditions.
Course Alignment: Pharmacology – Cardiac Meds; Skills – Administer Medications; Fundamentals – Communication and Cognitive and Sensory Deficits.
Live Patient Interaction
The instructor facilitates the virtual simulation scenario for the student group using INACSL Standards of Best Practice. The virtual patient has a variety of capabilities, including interactive blood pressure, temperature, stethoscope, and agitated animations.
This nursing simulation scene template includes a customizable long-term care residence with an interactive medication cart and medical record display.
Manipulate patient vital signs, animations and other scene variables (imaging and lab results, alarms, etc.) during live virtual patient encounters with the Simulation Manager.
Featured Lessons and Events
The Open RN project presented OER and virtual simulation during a lunch-and-learn and afternoon workshop.

Collaborators and Contributors
The OpenRN project is led by Chippewa Valley Technical College, and the textbooks are being collaboratively written with faculty from Wisconsin technical colleges. The books will be reviewed by statewide nursing faculty, deans, healthcare alliance members, and other industry representatives to ensure the content is current and accurate.
The OER Nursing textbooks are written based on the State Nursing curriculum established by the Wisconsin Technical College System, and include: Pharmacology, Skills, Nursing Fundamentals, Mental Health & Community Concepts, and Management & Professional Concepts.
