Fundamentals of Nursing

Fundamentals of Nursing

Nursing Anne Simulator’s feature set supports nursing curricula. With learning objectives at the core of the design, Nursing Anne Simulator is the ideal simulator to teach the fundamental skills of nursing.

From assessment and diagnosis skills, through planning, implementation and evaluation, Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to experience successes and mistakes while gaining the necessary confidence in a safe environment.


Nurse Orientation

Nurse Orientation

The transition from nursing school to clinical practice can be challenging. Effective onboarding that includes realistic, hands-on simulation training is critical to a nurse’s success and to the safety of patients. 

Delivering new hire training with Nursing Anne Simulator provides the ability to practice local protocols, test systems, and ensure patient safety procedures using a highly realistic female patient simulator. This can help accelerate the preparedness of new nurses as they enter practice.



Pharmacology is one of the most important elements in nursing education. From dosage and administration to monitoring the effects, nurses must work cross functionally to ensure safe medication practice.

Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to administer medication via IV, CVP, nasogastric, IM, anal and vaginal routes. They can administer medication and experience realistic responses from the simulator.

Health Assessment

Health Assessment

Nurses have many responsibilities, including assessing the needs of their patients. The initial health assessment is vital to the patient’s continuous well-being.  

Training with Nursing Anne Simulator allows learners to use their knowledge of medical equipment to check breathing rate, bilateral blood pressure assessment, heart rate, and various other health indicators that help determine a course of action. Learners get immediate feedback from the simulator and the simulated patient monitor.



Medical surgical nursing is a unique and comprehensive specialty, responding to the wide variety of problems patients may experience.

Nursing Anne Simulator can help simulate med-surg scenarios allowing learners to practice skills such as starting bilateral intravenous (IV) fluids, administering medications, patient positioning and hygiene. Healthcare professionals can also practice measuring and recording vital signs, changing dressings, and management of post-operative treatment.

Mental Health

Mental Health

One nursing specialty that is experiencing growing demand for workers is psychology and mental health. Nurses play a vital role in the psychiatric care process.

Common scenarios using Nursing Anne Simulator:

  • Evaluating the mental health needs of patients, using 2-way communication
  • Assessing patient consciousness
  • Providing personal support and care to the patient
  • Giving medications
In-situ simulation training

Take Your Simulation Training Further

Nursing Anne Simulator can be used as one component of a more comprehensive solution to further enhance your clinical skills training.

Added value with the Laerdal ecosystem

At Laerdal, we believe simulation training requires more than a manikin. 

With supporting products, local product support, and hands-on training, you get cost-effective solutions and prolonged life-span of your simulation center. 

Designed based on input from leading nursing educators from around the world, this engaging and robust platform enables nurses to practice a wide range of competencies both as a skills trainer and as a highly realistic female simulator.
