Nursing Simulation

Expand your capabilities with a Virtual Simulation Lab in Acadicus. Save money, save time, and provide students with engaging and memorable clinical experiences that prepare them for real world practice.

Get started pre-built scenarios, or create your own with our expansive library of interactive patients, equipment, and environments.

Simulated Clinicals that Empower Students

Provide hands-on simulations built on existing standards of best practices in simulation that enable students to interact with patients and clinicians in realistic real-world settings.

Decades of research and a strong community of instructors and technicians have led to a deep understanding of the benefits and best practices of simulation. In creating Acadicus, our goal was not just to develop a pre-programmed app, but to create a platform that supports this community and builds upon established best practices in simulation.

Open Source Nursing Scenarios

Acadicus provides a comprehensive collection of pre-built scenarios, patients, environments and equipment to support free OER nursing scenarios, developed with the expertise of leading nursing schools, instructors and simulation specialists through the Open RN project.  These scenarios are licensed under a Creative Commons CC BY 4.0 license, and are openly available for faculty to use, adapt or modify at no cost.

Browse the Open RN Scenarios or contact us to request a pdf.

Community of Practice

Connect with other simulation leaders in our community on Discord, and stay up-to-date on the latest developments in virtual simulation through our Acadicus Simulation Pulse, which features educator interviews, curated content, and best practices.

Accessing virtual simulations

VR and Non-VR Screen-Based

There will always be a subset of learners and faculty who aren’t comfortable wearing a headset, and we believe it is vitally important to ensure they are still included in your virtual simulations.  Acadicus provides lots of ways to access simulations.

Simple Pricing

Unlock the full potential of virtual simulation with a private Lab in Acadicus. Priced at $10,000 per year, it supports live simulations with up to 5 participants (or more, depending on the simulation), and offers unlimited access and no restriction on the number of students or instructors.

Instructors and facilitators have access to the entire Shared Content Library, and can edit scenes, create 3D recordings and host multi-user simulations.
