Simulation Effective for up to Half of Nurse Training

B-Line Medical Partners with University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing to Advance Curriculum

WASHINGTON, D.C. - February 24, 2015 - B-Line Medical announced today that it has partnered with the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing to provide nursing education and hospital simulation programs access to robust and proven healthcare curriculum. The recent NCSBN National Simulation Study, published by the Journal of Nursing Regulation, found substantial evidence that up to 50% simulation training can be effectively substituted for traditional clinical experience in all prelicensure core nursing courses. The partnership with The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing, ranked as the #1 nursing school by U.S. News & World Report, was formed to advance the use of high-quality simulation curriculum into nursing programs.

The nursing curriculum offered contains twelve unique scenarios created by The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing that seamlessly integrate with B-Line Medical's SimCapture platform, the leading healthcare simulation management solution. The scenarios focus on a wide range of common and often complex healthcare issues that nurses face on a daily basis. Each scenario contains learning objectives, a pre-brief, inventory requirements, room setup instructions, initial simulator states and adjustments, scripting, annotations, evaluations and reports, as well as a debriefing guide. In addition, sample healthcare simulation recording and debriefing policies and forms are included.

"We are excited to be partnering with such an esteemed nursing program. The University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing are experts in healthcare simulation and being able to deliver their proven curriculum to other SimCapture users is a real benefit to the simulation community," said President of B-Line Medical, Hartley Thompson. "Offering high quality, nursing curriculum on a turnkey basis provides new and existing programs a unique opportunity to quick start or enhance their program regardless of resource availability."

"We are proud of the cutting edge curriculum we offer and even prouder that through this partnership with B-Line Medical, Penn Nursing can serve as a model for others," said Antonia M. Villarruel, Dean of the University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing. "The future of healthcare depends on nursing. Providing students the opportunity to learn through simulation programs greatly enhances their education and has a direct impact on their future clinical experiences."
