Interprofessional Critical Care Simulations

Interprofessional Critical Care Simulations (ICCS)


The Interprofessional Critical Care Simulations (ICCS) equips final year medical and nursing students with the capacity to manage deteriorating patients in an inpatient setting. In this six-hour, simulation-based case experience, students discover patients with a worsening clinical status and collaborate across professions to diagnose and manage the patient. Layered in this case is also practice in escalating both interprofessionally and across the medical hierarchy. After the course, students are more prepared for their first day as a floor nurse or intern. Please contact The Center at ipecenter@vcu.edu with any questions.
