Demands on nurses are escalating. Let’s talk.

What people are saying

We are excited to train OR nurses with PeriopSim, preparing nurses before they go into clinical placements. Our aim is to use simulation to boost our existing training programs and train more nurses, more quickly.

Kit Mitchell

Manager of Perioperative Education and Simulation Strategy, Vancouver Coastal Health

We are excited to be leading the way with this simulation application for Perioperative Nurses for Northern Health. As a small, busy OR, our nurses need to be familiar with a very wide range of surgeries. With PeriopSim our nurses can learn a broad variety of procedures much more rapidly. It was very quick and painless to get set up and start learning.

Joanne George

Clinical Practice Leader, Northern Health

As a surgeon, I rely on my surgical team being well prepared for every surgery. PeriopSim means clinicians can practice safely before surgery, which means a more efficient surgical team and better patient outcomes.

James Bond MD
Chief of Thoracic Surgery, Surrey Memorial Hospital & Fraser Health

Perioperative Nurses are critical members of the surgical team in ensuring that instruments are ready and available efficiently at every stage of a surgical procedure. PeriopSim offers the opportunity to provide surgical nurse training cost-effectively and efficiently outside of the operating room.

Find out what 500 nurses and educators think

We asked over 500 perioperative nurses and educators to try out PeriopSim and tell us how valuable it is for learning instrumentation. Find out what they said about the roles it helps, the pain points it addresses and the most valuable learning features.
