Child Field Nursing Acute Sims

Two child field nursing simulations have been upgraded from VCC 1.5 to VCC 2.6 and enhanced to better support Pediatric Early Warning Scoring (PEWS) and structured assessment. Both of these simulations (Robert Powell, Asthma and Semina Akhtar, Pre-op Assessment/Appendicitis) are due for a further upgrade to 3.0 which will include moving away from illustrated media to 3D photo-real images and video.
