Academic Practice Partnership Demonstration (2020-2021)

This project was implemented at multiple ambulatory care practice locations by Wayne State University, with support from the MDHHS-ONP, to develop a replicable, immersive, technologically supported clinical education experience for nurse practitioner (NP) students in three geographically distinct and complex practice-based environments in medically underserved or health professional shortage areas of Michigan. Distance robotic clinical evaluation methodology using Double Robotic and TytoCare products were used to support efficient, tele-present oversight of the clinical placements.


Virtual Nursing Clinical Skills Assessment and Remediation

Ferris State School of Nursing faculty and staff, in partnership with four practice institutions and with support from the MDHHS-ONP, developed the following resource for nursing students and practicing nurses. The included videos may be used for new learning or remediation in cardiac arrest, de-escalation (crisis intervention), and immunization delivery.
