Want to test Ubisim?

American National University is proud to announce the new nursing software through UbiSim Virtual Reality. Those students looking to become a nurse can now do so with enhanced skills training and practice that will broaden their understanding across multiple hospital scenarios. Previously, nursing students attending ANU had to attend clinical training through partners of ANU, with the use of UbiSim we can now exceed standard hours of clinical training to further enhance skill development.

The UbiSim Virtual Reality experience will only boost American National University’s High Tech, High Touch™ initiative to provide students with an all-inclusive education. Students will receive lab equipment and an Oculus Quest 2 All-in-One VR Headset that they can utilize at the Pikeville campus. The virtual reality goggles with provide students with an immersive experience where they can develop clinical reasoning, decision making, and communication skills. Along with this, there are no hidden fees with ANU—at $310 per credit hour with all equipment and textbooks needed within that price, and this includes bootcamped training for the NCLEXRN.

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.

New Virtual Reality Lab Unveiled at Maria College

The Andrea Lewis Siek School of Nursing at Maria College has opened its Center for Academic Innovation, which includes a virtual reality simulation lab. The head of the new center, Dr. Jason Coley, said it’s an opportunity to simulate real-life scenarios so nursing students can practice before they work with people in real life. Coley said the lab tracks student progress and helps students with decision-making and communication skills. In addition, scenarios can be changed on the fly to make them more challenging for advanced students.
