Health Scholars is an interactive learning encounter for preceptors and nurses built on a measureable, self-contained mobile platform.

The idea for the application was conceived by nurses at OSF HealthCare and realized through a collaboration with SIMnext and CSE Software.

The mobile platform was developed to advance and standardize nurse training with the goal of reducing some of the most common errors made in medical institutions. It’s designed to help new nurses orient to the unit sooner and with less cost to the hospital, maintain the skills of experienced nurses and measure the performance of its users.

The tablet-based technology allows nurses and preceptors to work in a self-paced, value-based environment leading to demonstrated competencies and stronger relationships. Courses will be released continually and cover a wide range of topics.
