Self-directed practice to lead patient encounters
With Kognito simulations, schools of health professions are equipping nursing, social work, and medical students with the skills to increase patient engagement and improve health outcomes.
Supplement core curriculum, support distance learning, and make up lost clinical hours with realistic learning in a risk-free environment.
Practice-Based & Interactive
Each role-play scenario models a real-life patient encounter, providing hands-on practice engaging with
AI-powered virtual patients.
Self-Paced & Scalable
Our self-directed simulation practice is available on demand, can be
accessed on mobile devices, and does not require a facilitator.
As each learner navigates the simulated patient encounter, the course of the care interaction is tracked to provide a personalized completion report with tailored feedback for improvement.
Empirical studies show that Kognito simulations result in statistically significant improvements in knowledge, skills, attitudes, and behavior.

Students gaining clinical skills
University of Michigan School of Nursing
University of Michigan School of Nursing students who completed Kognito’s simulation training reported >58% increase (p < 0.001) in confidence to screen adolescents for substance use, provide a brief intervention, and refer adolescents for substance use support services while earning 2 hours of clinical practice.
Loyola School of Social Work
1,923 students, faculty, and community-based professionals trained with a Kognito simulation by Loyola University Chicago School of Social Work showed statistically significant increases (p < 0.001) across competency, self-efficacy, and behavior, as it relates to their knowledge and use of SBIRT.
Saint Louis University Trudy Busch Valentine School of Nursing
As reported in the Archives of Psychiatric Nursing, 59 students were asked to complete the simulation in their mental health and psychiatric nursing course. In the third simulated conversation, which assesses student competency in SBIRT, about two-thirds of students scored 80% or above.
