Untrained standardized patients (SPs) can derail a well constructed simulation. To maximize simulations that include standardized patients training is a crucial element. Research shows students prefer simulations with standardized patients. Make it easier by purchasing Avkin’s standardized patient certificate.
Avkin’s team of experts is ready to take the guess work out of training click below for more information.
History of Simulation
Don't take our word for it
I can't thank Amy and Megan enough for all of the help you have provided us. You have given us the confidence to train SPs (standardized patients) and the knowledge to develop a comprehensive cadre of SPs for the University of Michigan School of Nursing.

By the end of this course…
- Participants will be able to identify the difference and importance of two kinds of standardizations.
- Participants will be able to explain the 5 domains of best practice from ASPE.
- Participants will implement lessons and best practice for feedback after simulation during the debriefing session.
- Participants will demonstrate an advanced level of professionalism and recognize their part in simulation.
SP TRANING COURSE
Megan will guide you through the 5 lessons of what it takes to be a simulated participant. This course was designed to turn novices into confident professionals who are ready to participate in simulation. Each lesson will provide insightful PowerPoints, full simulation videos, and quizzes to ensure you are ready for simulation.
