Underserved, aging and sometimes poor, the people in rural regions present healthcare challenges distinctly different from what population health nurses experience in cities. Sentinel Town® is our virtual rural community specifically designed to help nursing students master assessment and intervention planning that makes an impact in rural communities.

Tour Sentinel Town

Each trip into Sentinel Town rural community is a unique adventure. Faculty can choose from a variety of assignments to drive desired learning outcomes. Students have the opportunity to practice dealing with a health environment, without leaving home. Like all our products, Sentinel Town gives nurse educators a supplemental teaching tool for nursing education texts at pre-licensure (ADN and BSN), and post-licensure (RN-BSN) programs.
