Posted by Nursing Educator on Jan 28, 2016 12:50:32 AM

 

Students need to be adequately prepared for the real-life clinical environment. Paper based clinical logs can get lost and don’t offer aggregate reporting.

Developed in collaboration with pre-licensure and graduate nursing programs, nTrack allows students to track their clinical experience and patient encounters. Additionally they can track time spent with each patient and at clinical site.
