In the rapidly evolving landscape of healthcare, staying at the forefront of medical practice and education is more crucial than ever. As the demand for skilled nursing professionals continues to rise, so does the need for innovative and effective training methods.  

TLN’s PatientAssessmentVR is reshaping the way nurses are trained and assessed leveraging innovative Virtual Reality (VR) technology.

The PatientAssessmentVR represents a transformative leap forward in training and preparing the next generation of healthcare professionals. This technology offers students an unparalleled opportunity to engage with realistic patient scenarios, honing their assessment skills in an immersive environment. By using this learning tool, we are empowering future nurses to deliver exceptional patient care with confidence.

PatientAssessmentVR offers a comprehensive way for nurses to enhance their skills, boost confidence, and provide a safe space to practice their craft.  

The PatientAssessmentVR VR training program includes many unique features:

A “Tutorial/Practice” mode where learners can get comfortable and gain confidence before doing their assessment. 

PatientAssessmentVR practice mode will enhance the nurse’s learning experience by providing a highly immersive and engaging learning experience. Learners can interact with a realistic environment and scenarios, which can make learning more enjoyable and effective. 

Learners can repeat exercises or scenarios in VR as many times as needed to master a skill. This promotes a growth mindset and encourages continuous improvement.

Multiple characters that are randomized for assessments

PatientAssessmentVR combines nine (9) characters with a representation of different ethnicities. This helps in the following ways:

Cultural Sensitivity

It promotes cultural sensitivity and awareness by exposing participants to a diverse range of characters, helping them understand and appreciate different cultures and perspectives.

Reduced Bias

Randomization reduces the potential for bias in assessments. Since characters’ ethnicities are randomized, it minimizes the chance of unintentional bias in test content, grading, or participant responses.

Fairness

It enhances fairness in assessments. By including characters from various ethnic backgrounds, the assessment is more likely to be inclusive and equitable, ensuring that no particular group is unfairly advantaged or disadvantaged.

Reduces cheating

With randomized characters, it becomes more challenging for test-takers to collaborate or share answers since they can’t predict the specific characteristics of the characters they will encounter in each assessment instance.
