Closing the Gap Between Real-world Nursing Settings and Practicum Activities: Development and Application of a New Education Resource Incorporating Virtual Reality
The aim of this study was to develop a new education resource which provides a nursing experience similar to that of real-world settings. In this study, students wore a head-mounted display and experienced virtual reality. The safety and learning effects of the education resource were then assessed using autonomic nerve and brainwave measurement devices. In addition, following the virtual reality experience, a survey was conducted to validate the usefulness of the new education resource. In a further analysis, students were divided into two groups: those who used an existing audio-visual resource and those who used the new resource developed through this study.
Results suggested that the education resource developed in this study allowed students to easily repeat multiple learning problems while ensuring safety and learning effects. In future, the results may be used as an index for the further development and validation of the educational effects of similar education resources.
