Why Nurses love Body Interact

Body Interact is a tool that helps educators teach one step at a time and to think critically in a timing matter.
Students totally love it because they can play the same scenario several times to constantly improve.

Lorraine Betts, RN, MN, CHSEProfessor of Simulation Education at George Brown College

We know that students become more satisfied by training with Body Interact. They develop a greater perception of effectiveness when solving different clinical cases.

Miguel Padilha, RN, CRRN, PhDProfessor at Escola Superior de Enfermagem do Porto

Body Interact brings realism and innovation to the classroom. It allows students to make mistakes and to do their self-analysis of competencies.
Everything without harming the patient.

Leila Sales, MScN, RNCoordinator of the Nursing Department at the Portuguese Red Cross Higher School of Healt in Lisbon
