"Our school of
nursing has utilized PDS's nursing software for many years. The
software has always been user and network friendly. Normal lab
results and patient assessments are available as well as
definitions. Immediate scoring and feedback is provided. The
scenarios place the student in the role of the nurse within a
clinical setting and the student is able to make decisions and
take action in a non-threatening environment. The variety and
depth of the nursing scenarios promotes critical thinking in the
student throughout the curriculum."

"We have found the PDS online
nursing modules to be a convenient and effective supplement to our orientation
The Methodist Hospital
Health Modules are used to supplement our nursing course work.
Before a student can sit for an examination, he/she must turn in
the modules that have been assigned for them to complete prior
to sitting for their theory examinations. Students have
indicated that the modules are very helpful; they especially
like to download the summary that goes along with the cases. All
of the modules are used students are encouraged to complete the
modules while going through the various systems."

uses the modules for clinical reasoning cases in Med Surg and
Critical Care. Our students like the user-friendliness and ease
of using the modules, and we like a summary print-out. Faculty
do the summary tracking and can see if students are taking time
to learn, or just speeding through to fill in answers."

the online assessment: Clinical Nursing Concepts:
Pharmacodynamics and the Administration of Meds: Non-Parenteral.
The immediate feedback on incorrect answers made this a much
better learning experience than similar tests I have had the
"pleasure" of taking in the past. Instructions and questions
were clearly stated and easy to follow. Kudos to the developer
of this online assessment!"
"We have used
the site as a complement to traditional class room lecture. We
have also used the site to serve as makeup time if a student has
missed a few clinical hours. The case studies have also been
used for remediation for students who have not been successful
on a unit exam. We like the modules as they can be done at home
which students greatly appreciate. They also show a variety of
ages and cultural variations."
"I just wanted
to let you know how much I like your case studies. I teach my
nursing courses online and I have embedded your case studies
into each of my modules at the end. The students love them! They
really help to test their knowledge and to clarify points that
they didn't quite understand. I'm so glad that Austin Community
College acquired these case studies. Thank you for putting out
such a wonderful product."
