It was just enough urgency. I did feel the stress, that was perfect. That was exactly the right amount, and it was very similar to what you would see in clinical.
It's very exciting and it’s something that students will love. I think that they will find this a positive learning experience. It'll push them but it'll be in a way that they can make sense of it.
As related to high fidelity, it's really very much similar in that you can hear things, you can see things, you can do things, you can touch things so to speak. All those senses are virtually enhanced.
vrClinicals can be used as one component of a more comprehensive solution to further enhance clinical skills training for better preparedness of nurses.
