Virtual Holographic Simulation: Measuring Nursing Student Outcomes from Immersive Technology

Friday, November 02 | 9:00AM–9:45AM MT | Mile High Ballroom 1C/D, Ballroom Level
Session Type: Breakout Session
Delivery Format: Interactive Presentation
Emerging holographic VR simulation technology delivers nursing simulation at a fraction of the cost of traditional health care simulation modalities. At San Diego State University, we partnered with Pearson and Microsoft to explore the efficacy of holographic virtual simulation through the HoloLens to increase skills, knowledge, confidence, and motivation to learn.

Outcomes: Explore how virtual holographic simulation is being used for nursing education * Take ideas for immersive learning back to your institution * Replicate similar studies in fields across the educational spectrum
