VIDEO: Suzie Kardong-Edgren of Robert Morris University talks about the benefits of Nursing Anne Simulator
The first nursing simulator to cover every aspect of modern nursing education, Nursing Anne Simulator offers safe and realistic practice on core nursing skills - from basic assessments and critical thinking to advanced interventions.
This simulator can be used as a highly realistic patient simulator as well as a skills trainer.
A modular platform
Nursing Anne Simulator is a modular platform consisting of a variety of accessories and interchangeable parts. This facilitate a variety of simulated patients and provide unique training opportunities.
Provides learners with added realism to help develop cultural competence and situational awareness about cultural characteristics that can play a major role in a patient’s care.
Feet skin accessories that represent staged wounds for advanced skills practice with diabetic, pressure ulcer or bed sore feet.
Learners can practice post-surgical care skills for a patient who has undergone a mastectomy procedure.
Skin modules to help learners identify, assess and treat different types of patient wounds.
Absorbable pads placed under the skin to help learners with skills training of administering injections.
Realistic patient care procedures
Including placement and care of NG tubes, gastric lavage, and gavage, complete urinary catheterization.
Palpation of anatomy includes clavicle, scapula, and anterior superior iliac crest. You can also train on IM injections that require palpation for proper insertion locations.
Evaluate patient consciousness
Conscious patient characteristics including spontaneous breathing and blinking eyes.
Designed for nursing education
Teach learners how to auscultate anterior and posterior lung sounds as well as heart and bowel sounds.
Medication and fluids
Train on infusion of fluids and medication with bilateral (pre-ported) IV arms and central line catheter.
Train on CPR
CPR capabilities including compressions and ventilation.
Perform realistic vital signs assessment with bilateral blood pressures and pulses.
Let learners interact realistically with wireless and tetherless operation.
Realistic patient handing and movement with bilateral articulating elbows, positional head, and bendable waist allowing her to sit up unassisted or be placed in tripod position.
Expand the scope of training
Take your training to the next level with add-on accessory modules that facilitate clinical training focused on learning objectives geared toward mastectomy care, wound assessment and general patient care.
Nursing Anne Simulator’s feature set supports nursing curricula. With learning objectives at the core of the design, Nursing Anne Simulator is the ideal simulator to teach the fundamental skills of nursing.
From assessment and diagnosis skills, through planning, implementation and evaluation, Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to experience successes and mistakes while gaining the necessary confidence in a safe environment.

The transition from nursing school to clinical practice can be challenging. Effective onboarding that includes realistic, hands-on simulation training is critical to a nurse’s success and to the safety of patients.
Delivering new hire training with Nursing Anne Simulator provides the ability to practice local protocols, test systems, and ensure patient safety procedures using a highly realistic female patient simulator. This can help accelerate the preparedness of new nurses as they enter practice.
Pharmacology is one of the most important elements in nursing education. From dosage and administration to monitoring the effects, nurses must work cross functionally to ensure safe medication practice.
Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to administer medication via IV, CVP, nasogastric, IM, anal and vaginal routes. They can administer medication and experience realistic responses from the simulator.
Nurses have many responsibilities, including assessing the needs of their patients. The initial health assessment is vital to the patient’s continuous well-being.
Training with Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to use their knowledge of medical equipment to check breathing rate, bilateral blood pressure assessment, heart rate, and various other health indicators that help determine a course of action. Learners get immediate feedback from the simulator and the simulated patient monitor.
Medical surgical nursing is a unique and comprehensive specialty, responding to the wide variety of problems patients may experience.
Nursing Anne Simulator can help simulate med-surg scenarios allowing learners to practice skills such as starting bilateral intravenous (IV) fluids, administering medications, patient positioning and hygiene. Healthcare professionals can also practice measuring and recording vital signs, changing dressings, and management of post-operative treatment.
One nursing specialty that is experiencing growing demand for workers is psychology and mental health. Nurses play a vital role in the psychiatric care process.
