SonoSim, Inc., has launched a comprehensive nurse ultrasound training curriculum designed to support artificial intelligence (AI)-guided ultrasound training needs. The curriculum is designed to assist nurse training programs, integrate recent, remarkable advances in AI-guided ultrasound applications into nurse education and, subsequently, patient care.

This announcement comes in the wake of multiple advances in AI-guided ultrasound applications focused on commonly performed procedures by nurses. Recent AI advances have made nurse-performed ultrasound – specifically bladder ultrasound, ultrasound-guided peripheral venous cannulation, and, most recently, cardiac ultrasound – a progressively widespread practice across hospitals. SonoSim’s nurse ultrasound training curriculum will help hospitals and nursing programs provide the foundational ultrasound knowledge and skills necessary to successfully integrate AI-guided ultrasound applications into clinical practice.
SonoSim’s nurse ultrasound training curriculum will deliver 12 modules with 95 simulation-based training cases across a variety of essential topics. Each SonoSim Module consists of online peer-reviewed courses, knowledge assessments, and real-patient scanning cases in the SonoSimulator. Topics will include: Fundamentals of Ultrasound, Upper Extremity Venous Ultrasound, Upper Extremity Arterial Ultrasound, Soft Tissue Ultrasound, Bladder Ultrasound, Heart Ultrasound, Lung Ultrasound, Introduction to Ultrasound-Guided Procedures, and Ultrasound-Guided Peripheral Venous Cannulation.
