A recent survey of 204 nurse learners reveals that immersive virtual reality (VR) technology is gaining traction as the preferred simulation modality in nursing education, with perceived benefits for exam and career preparation.
“The immersive nature of VR allows them to fully engage with the training simulations, enhancing their learning experience and preparedness. Nursing deans, directors, administrators, and simulation directors may want to adjust their training delivery methods to integrate the cost-effective option that VR presents for scaling nursing education.”
Virtual reality technology offers an impactful learning experience for nursing students. It provides an interactive and hands-on approach so learners can actively participate in their training rather than passively observing. By simulating real-life scenarios, nurses practice their skills in a safe and controlled environment, improving their decision-making abilities in a wide range of medical scenarios, including rare or critical cases, before encountering real patients.
