Kaplan Nursing, which partners with nursing schools to prepare students for licensing exams and careers in healthcare, launched an interactive virtual simulation program through i-Human Patients (IHP) to help train nurses in making clinical judgments.

IHP is a high-performance, healthcare case-authoring and playback system that can simulate a nurse’s complete patient encounter such as recognizing, analyzing and prioritizing data; performing a nursing assessment; and evaluating patient outcomes.

The Kaplan Nursing virtual simulation program thorough IHP lets students practice the complete nursing process in a “safe space” before they interact with live patients. It provides feedback and clinical judgment guidance, regardless of the time of day or faculty staffing considerations; offers assessment analytics with objective user data by student or cohort and it can be used to complement or substitute existing clinical instruction.

Kaplan says HP is a key part of  its licensure operation and expands its professional healthcare licensure exam preparation offerings.
