Nursing Simulation

Simulate clinical experiences that engage communication skills and critical thinking with Acadicus.  Access to an expansive library of realistic clinical settings, patients, equipment and scenarios to provide students with powerful learning experiences based on existing best practices in simulation.

Library of Scenarios, Patients, and Environments

Developed with guidance from expert instructors and simulationists, Acadicus comes with an expansive library of simulation content, including free OER nursing scenarios, medical environments, equipment, and virtual patients.  Here are some examples:

Empower Students with Hands-On Clinical Experiences

High fidelity virtual simulation brings patients to life with live actors to create highly engaging learning experiences in a safe environment.  

Standards of Best Practice in Simulation

The benefits and best practices of Simulation are well understood, thanks to decades of research and a close-knit community of instructors and technicians in sim labs around the world.

So when we set out to create Acadicus, we didn’t want to just build a pre-programmed app. We wanted to create a place capable of supporting this community, and building on established best practices of simulation.
