As part our vision to create a package of low-cost and free simulation materials for Students, we’re excited to introduce a series of Courses available for Free!
These Courses include a free electronic health record (EHR) Simulation for Students, with the ability to build new patients, access pre-built Case Studies, practice documentation, and more. Here’s more information on the first Course we’ve created: Charting 101: Introduction to EHRs and Documentation
ChartFlow 101: Introduction to EHRs and Documentation
The first Course we’ve put together is a simple one—4 different Activities designed to get Students familiar with not only ChartFlow but how EHRs function.

For more information on how to use ChartFlow, you can review our Student Patient Chart Guide.
Vital Signs Documentation
Students will practice documenting Vital Signs in ChartFlow.
- Taking and entering the patient’s temperature
- Taking and entering the patient’s pulse
- Taking and entering the patient’s blood pressure
- Taking and entering the patient’s respiratory rate
To keep things simple, we’ve provided all the information students need to enter in the Activity’s Instructions.
Students will practice prioritizing patients in ChartFlow, based on their vital signs and plan of care.
- Classifying patients as stable vs unstable
- Identifying which patients need the most urgent attention
- Identifying which patients need additional monitoring
This Activity is especially perfect for CNA, LPN / LVN, ADN, and BSN students. But we welcome all students in all healthcare programs!
The final Activity includes 6 of our Template Patients, available for Students to freely explore, review documentation, and practice charting on.
This is the perfect place to make mistakes, review Case Studies, think critically about the patient’s plan of care, other clinicians and their involvement, and more.
