Goals & Objectives

Brief Summary of Case:

The Canadian Association of Schools of Nursing (CASN) in partnership with the Canadian Alliance of Nurse Educators using Simulation (CAN-Sim) have collaborated to develop and disseminate five virtual simulation modules in both official languages to build capacity among graduating and new registered nurses entering the health care workforce during the COVID-19 pandemic.

VSGs have been developed in the following areas:

  1. Care of patient on ventilation
  2. Multiple organ dysfunction
  3. Geriatric fluid volume deficiency
  4. Deteriorating patient
  5. Running a code

ACCESS THE VSGs >

Learning Objectives:

The goal of these VSGs is to strengthen the capacity of nursing students and registered nurses to provide safe and effective care, while protecting themselves and others from the spread of infection.
