As someone with extensive experience working in health care environments, Rocio Paz knows that life comes at nurses fast.

“You aren’t just dealing with the patients, you’re dealing with their families, and you never know when something might happen,” says Paz, who has spent nearly two decades as a registration and admissions clerk at various area hospitals and clinics. “You need to know how you’re going to respond in situations like that."

Paz and other students in Sheridan’s Practical Nursing diploma program will soon be better prepared to navigate those types of fluid conditions. The program recently implemented immersive virtual reality (VR) technology into its curriculum, utilizing UbiSim software that runs on Oculus Quest 2 headsets and is designed to develop nursing students’ clinical reasoning, decision-making and communication skills.

New virtual training lab for RPCC nursing students

As part of a larger initiative in spatial learning, RPCC expanded its VR Mobile Sim Lab to include a permanent, fixed VR Sim Lab at Reserve. With over 50 pre-built scenarios, instructors and students can get started in the VR platform immediately. And when students are done, the VR healthcare platform allows for instructors to capture data that otherwise is counterproductive, if not impossible, to assess student performance with necessary skills. From how long the student took to make decisions, to rewatching the student’s performance, and even automatically capturing skills gaps based on objectives the instructor prescribes, faculty can focus more on the teaching, learning, and reteaching necessary to help students reach their highest potential as healthcare professionals. However, the power of this VR healthcare platform goes beyond those features. In consultation with faculty, RPCC’s Department of Innovative Teaching & Learning is developing their own healthcare experiences in VR to represent situations healthcare professionals more accurately in south Louisiana will encounter.
