Immersive VR comes to the nursing classroom

November 14, 2023


Seniors in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program on the Twin Cities and Rochester campuses participated in their first immersive virtual reality (VR) simulation module in September. All BSN seniors will participate in five modules over the course of the semester culminating in an immersive VR simulation requiring nursing care for a caseload of five patients. The sessions are part of the Big 10 Practice-Ready Nursing Initiative led by Assistant Professor Cynthia Bradley PhD, RN, CNE, CHSE, ANEF, who received a $1.3 million grant from the American Nurses Foundation as part of the Reimagining Nursing Initiative.
