In conversation with Tony and Lawrence, Christine shared her insights on the immersive power of VR simulation. She clarified the importance of having educators actually experience VR themselves so they can fully understand its potential, underscored the need to adhere to the INACSL Healthcare Simulation Standards of Best Practice in any kind of healthcare simulation, and shared her ideas about VR's place in the spectrum of simulation methodologies.

Key Quotes from Christine Vogel: 

"The first time I put on the headset, I was absolutely amazed by how immersed I felt. And so, you really feel like you're in the room, you can see your patient and it's just very realistic and you can hear them with great, you know, audio and just authentic, dialogs and then tactile as well when you pick up the handset."

"Simulation is a technique, not a technology. And we need to make sure that we're using the best technology and the best, modality for the learning experience we want to cover."

"My view is that VR simulation complements and scales simulation and programs. So whether those are established simulation programs or new simulation programs, I think it's another tool in the toolbox that educators have to provide a very standardized and effective simulation experience for learners."

Using Virtual Reality to Improve Communication and Collaboration in Nursing Teams

Nursing is a profession that requires not only technical skills, but also soft skills such as critical thinking, decision making, empathy, confidence, teamwork, and smooth communication. But how can less experienced nurses develop their soft skills in terms of judgment, communication, and teamwork for better patient outcomes? Simulations allow nurses to practice and improve clinical reasoning, teamwork, and resilience in a realistic, controlled, high-pressure but safe environment. That’s the value of simulation; it’s a chance to make mistakes, analyze and reflect on performance, determine the possible fixes, and build muscle memory without real-world consequences from errors.
