Nurse’s Touch is an exclusive online learning tool designed to help students sharpen their professional and interpersonal skills to help face the emotional and physical demands that come with being a nurse. Featuring tutorials, case studies, assessments and high-quality, live-action video, Nurse’s Touch simulates sensitive but common scenarios nurses face on the job.

- Leadership and Management
Preparing students for clinical is a challenge. We do as many things as we can to prepare a student for clinical. Nurse’s Touch allows us to prepare them to interact with a patient in a way that they probably haven’t done in their previous life, if you will. So they learn the caring art of the nurse/patient relationship. It’s not taught in a textbook. It’s not even taught online in many cases. However, the students are able to do that now with Nurse's Touch.
