Elsevier’s simulation solutions offer realistic, hands-on experience in a controlled and monitored environment. These products are designed to help build critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills and give students the confidence and clinical competence they need to succeed in professional practice.

According to research conducted by the National Council of State Boards of Nursing, the use of simulation for up to 50% of the clinical experience is an effective strategy for preparing pre-licensure students for nursing practice.
