Wishing you a great Healthcare Simulation Week. 2020 certainly has changed many things… we hope you are able to take a little time this week to celebrate all you have done to enhance and adapt your nursing simulation program this year!!!
Day 1 of SimGHOSTS was fantastic! Lots of interest in meds2GROW and how it can bring hospital barcode medication administration to your nursing lab!
Every penny counts in the current economy. Are you looking for ways to be fiscally responsible while advancing your simulation program in adopting barcode medication administration (BCMA)? We are here to provide support.
First, we have a free completed generic grant proposal template for you to use in writing for your next grant. Simply cut and paste into the format of whatever grant RFP that you may have.
Many nursing programs may qualify for the CARES Act funding and further details about that can be found at CARES Act.
Lastly, meds2GROW is remarkably affordable. The low one-time cost has allowed for many programs to purchase multiple systems for less than the price of one hospital-based automated dispensing unit!
Are you looking for medication administration training that includes real barcode scanning and eMAR documentation? Would you be interested in a system that has no reset time between student use to allow for efficient repeated practice?
Many nursing program simulation coordinators are considering implementing new processes this Fall to increase alternate clinical experiences for their nursing students. Is your program one of these?
meds2GROW will give your students a realistic medication administration experience in the safety of your simulation lab.
You’re invited to find out more in this 30-minute training with Q&A to see just how easily meds2GROW can be used at your school!
Here are a few possible times for the training. Does one of these work in your schedule?
- Monday, May 18, 2020 at 5pm Eastern
- Thursday, May 21, 2020 at 7pm Eastern
- Tuesday, May 26, 2020 at 11am Eastern
We’d be honored to assist you in exploring your options in advancing the simulation-based activities in your curriculum.
Several years ago we were Nursing Simulation Faculty frustrated with the existing medication administration equipment in our lab. We had clunky outdated nursing home carts and paper charts. We also had ONE expensive grant funded system that was VERY labor intensive for set up/maintenance and unable to support the volume of students practicing med administration.
Out of that need for change came meds2GROW! We identified the pain points universally encountered by nursing faculty– lack of realism including functional barcode scanning, lack of time to reset a cumbersome system between students, and lack of money to purchase multiple systems for the volume of students.
Over the past five years, nursing schools from around the USA have discovered how truly easy it is to use meds2GROW and hundreds of students are practicing medication administration safely in the simulation lab before passing medications in clinical.
We invite you to celebrate our 5th Anniversary with a 10% discount on orders placed before May 31, 2020.
meds2GROW addresses the need for realistic barcode scanning as part of a comprehensive simulated medication administration training system. Nursing programs striving to incorporate best practices in teaching safe medication administration now can check barcode scanning off their search list!
Given the need for social distancing, we were informed that the OCONLL conference will be delayed until 2021. We look forward to meeting everyone next year! In the meantime, we are going to be at INACSL 2020 and OADN 2020!
Great news! We will be participating in the Ohio Consortium of Nursing Learning Labs Conference in Canton, OH. Come and see for yourself just how easy meds2GROW is to fit into your program.
We are looking forward to our 4th INACSL Exhibit in sunny Raleigh, NC! Stop by to say hi in June, 2020. We would be honored to show you just how easy meds2GROW will be to incorporate into your medication administration training goals.
We had a great response last year at the OADN conference, so we will be demonstrating meds2GROW at our OADN 2020 booth in Indianapolis in November. meds2GROW is a great fit for those nursing programs with limited resources- both limited staffing and limited budgets.
There is going to be a great session at IMSH 2020 in San Diego on “Rapid Cycle Deliberate Practice and Acquisition of Medication Administration Skills.” meds2GROW was created by two nursing faculty for this very purpose! #PracticePracticePractice
