Nursing Anne

Nursing Anne is a manikin designed for scenario-based training for the care and management of basic patient handling skills to advanced nursing skills.


Efficient, Flexible and Effective Clinical Trainer

A manikin designed for scenario-based training for the care and management of a wide variety of in-hospital patients.

Nursing Scenarios from Industry Leaders

Integrate pre-programed simulation content designed to provide participants with deliberate clinical training with a focus on specific learning objectives, geared toward women’s health. 

Laerdal Scenario Cloud

Building Competencies


Nursing Anne is educationally effective for clinical training targeting key skills from basic patient care to advanced nursing necessary for in-hospital patient care. This flexible manikin platform allows multiple accessory modules to be added including trauma, NBC module, and bleeding control for use in multiple settings.

Improving Patient Safety

The challenge to deliver continuous and consistent quality patient care requires proper training, accurate assessments, interventions, and clinical decision-making skills to ensure the best patient outcomes. By incorporating consistent simulation scenarios available on Laerdal Scenario Cloud, instructors can easily integrate simulation into their clinical training curriculums helping learners make and correct their clinical errors without adverse consequences.

Nursing Anne Features


NG tube insertion care, medication administration and removal; gastric lavage and gavage.


Tracheostomy care and tracheal suctioning.


Articulating IV training arm allows peripheral intravenous therapy with IV bolus or push injection. Venipuncture possible in the antecubital fossa or dorsum of hand.


Optional mastectomy Module can be used to practice postsurgical mastectomy care procedures.


Interchangeable genitalia with connectors & urinary and colon reservoirs facilitate urologic care procedures and gastrointestinal procedures.


Wound Care and Assessment Set can be added to the Nursing Anne manikin simulator for realism in wound assessment and patient care scenarios.
