Maribeth Hollern

My name is Maribeth Hollern and I am currently an Adjunct Clinical Nursing Faculty Member for two Michigan universities as well as an active SICU RN. Both of these roles have served me well, and have led me to my third role, as creator and product specialist for Legend Medical.

We tailor make to your specifications Clinical Lab Student Nurse Skills Kits utilizing supplies that reflect current practice thereby benefiting the students and the program alike.

Students are allowed and encouraged to practice their skills before, during and after lab which is an incredible advantage related to skills that require remediation. The students have ownership of their supplies thus mindful of being prepared and responsible.

The Schools of Nursing benefit by significantly reducing lab costs. Yearly inventory and re-ordering becomes unnecessary. Lab set-up time and the need for storage are all but eliminated.

Our kits were highly received at the NLN Education Summit this past September, and what we learned there, is that Student Nurse Skill's kits are the future. Ours are economic, current and customized.

Therefore, I would love to come and show you a sample kit, give you an estimate on what we can do for your program, or just speak with you regarding the features and benefits of skills kits.

Philosophy Statement

My nursing philosophy is dynamic and unique to my belief system.

"Every clinical teacher has a philosophy of clinical teaching, whether they know it or not."
(Gaberson & Oermann, 1999).

  • I believe that statement to be true. Continuous self-reflection is essential to my philosophy of being a clinical educator.
  • I believe that learning is an active process that takes time and varies from learner to learner.
  • I also believe that the learning environment must be supported by a climate of mutual trust and respect to enhance a student's confidence.
  • I believe I have a responsibility to create a link between the classroom and clinical environment.
  • I know my philosophy will continue to evolve as I progress throughout this educational process.

Injection pad by Wallcur. The perfect size for students to practice on (Practi-SimSkin with an epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous layer also now available!)

Injection Pads

Teach a variety of injection techniques using just one innovative simulation aid. Wallcur's Practi-Mini Injecta Pad™ is a more compact (smaller and lighter weight) version of the original Practi-Injecta Pad™.

This compact injection simulator is perfect to include in individual skills packs for students of nursing, EMT, and other allied health classes. With Practi-Mini Injecta Pad™, now each student can practice intradermal, subcutaneous, intramuscular, z-track, and many other injection techniques with their very own injection simulator.

The Practi-Mini Injecta Pad™ measures 5"x5" providing plenty of surface area for students to practice skin puncture resistance and tissue displacement on both the top, and bottom of the pad. At 2-1/2” thick, and plump with Wallcur's exclusive filling, your students will experience the "feeling" of aspiration tension, so vital when mastering I.M. injection techniques. In addition, this thickness provides the opportunity for practice with a variety of different needle lengths.

Help your students overcome the natural fears associated with giving injections. Building muscle memory and mastering injection techniques go hand-in-hand as the more opportunities they have to practice, the more confident they will become.

Watch your students' confidence, and competence, improve as they hone their injection technique skills, safely, with Practi-Mini Injecta Pad™.

Add Wallcur's Practi-Mini Templates™ to increase student skill competency. A perfect accompaniment to the Practi-Mini-Injecta-Pad.

Wallur's new Practi-SimSkin consists of an epidermis, dermis and subcutaneous layer and behaves and feels like real skin. Designed for intradermal injection and handcrafted to produce a "bleb" or "wheel" with either liquid or air injections. Ideal for use with Wallcur's patented Practi-Injecta Pad.

The size of this injection simulator is 3"x3", giving your students plenty of practice area and the option of using multiple needle lengths.

Nurse and educator tested and approved!

For simulation practice only.
