“Quality and safety competencies come alive in simulation”

QSEN Institute and Shadow Health® announce partnership to develop virtual patient simulations

CLEVELAND, Ohio.  — The Quality and Safety Education for Nurses (QSEN) Institute has partnered with Shadow Health, an educational software developer, to infuse the QSEN competencies into web-based Digital Clinical Experiences™. This fall, Shadow Health will launch Undergraduate Mental Health and Gerontology Digital Clinical Experiences — the first of the simulations developed in full partnership with the QSEN Institute.

Shadow Health’s Digital Clinical Experiences are designed to augment courses for nursing and allied health programs. Using a state-of-the-art conversation engine and interactive 3D imagery, students engage with Digital Standardized Patients™ to perform assessments, practice documentation, and demonstrate critical thinking. Since 2012, more than 1,300 programs have adopted these Digital Clinical Experiences for use in their courses.
