Virtual Clinical Excursions 3.0 for Principles and Practice of Psychiatric Nursing, 10th Edition

NOT AVAILABLE

One of the most complete nursing education learning systems available, Virtual Clinical Excursions is an online program that guides you through a virtual hospital where the patients are real and their conditions are constantly changing. By immersing students in a realistic, yet safe, nursing environment, VCE simulates the average clinical rotation by allowing users to conduct a complete assessment of a patient and set priorities for care, collect information, analyze and interpret data, prepare and administer medications, and reach conclusions about complex problems. Each lesson has a textbook reading assignment and activities based on "visiting" the patients in the hospital - providing a perfect environment to "practice" what you are learning.

IMPORTANT: The virtual hospital will be accessible online coming Fall 2013.

Published Reviews

    "The workbook is well constructed with an excellent introductory tutorial which aids the reader to build confidence in using the virtual environment and helps demonstrate the capacity of virtual learning. The setting for the experience is within an acute general healthcare hospital which provides a good opportunity for students to explore the links between physical and mental health and extend their learning in both areas." Nurse Education in Practice, July 2009
