Student nurses in France are using experience playing video games to help their training. View All

Virtual reality - or VR - is being used more at nursing colleges.

The program at this college in Paris, France, allows nurses to develop new skills more quickly. In a real hospital, this would take much longer.

Wearing a headset, the student feels surrounded by a real hospital.

VR gives trainee nurses practice with "virtual" patients.

Sitting at a computer screen, the student nurses guide themselves around a hospital room. They ask the patient questions just as if they were real people.

VR isn't just valuable for learning. It also helps assess the skills students are developing. View Less
