Virtual Reality Lab; innovative methods in Nursing Skill Laboratory Magda Mohsen1, Omaima M.Okby2, Neima A.Reiad3, Manal E.Fareed4, Amal A.El-Sheikh5, Community Health Nursing1, Pediatric Nursing2 and Adult Health Nursing 3, 4 &5 Faculty of Nursing, Menofia University Egypt
Virtual reality is an artificial environment that is created with software and
to the user in such a way that the user suspends belief and accepts it
as a real environment
The virtual reality lab
the art of clinical simulation equipment allows practice of nursing skills in a realistic clinical environment.
Having a full spectrum
of simulation equipment
task trainers to
virtual nursing skill simulators
Simulation lab provide nursing students with
Critical thinking practice for a wide range of conditions .
Clinical experience in a risk-free virtual reality environment.
Opportunity to respond in real time to patient situations.
promotes appropriate, timely decision-making in a safe, repeatable environment
The goal of VR is accuracy & competency of
before the student enters the clinical environment.
Aim of the Study
investigate the scope and the role of virtual reality (VR) in nursing education in form of three perspectives: those of students, the lecturers, and technological aspects particularly in the development of effective virtual environments.
Subjects & Method;
lecturers of nursing faculty ; all nursing faculty who provide students nurse teaching in the virtual nursing skill lab.; "adult Health nursing lab" as well as "Pediatric lab" was included in the study.
Students nurse in adult health nursing labs and pediatric nursing labs were included in the study.
Method; After describing the different visions of VR, presentation of virtual objects to all students senses in a way identical to their natural counterpart, and computer interaction in which users are active participants within a computer.
Tools for Data Collection:
Questionnaire for Students nurse.
Skill Performance for Students nurse on CPR for adults, child and infants
Questionnaire for lecturers
Nursing Skill Labs
Adult Health Skill Lab
Critical Care Skill Lab
Maternal Skill Lab
Pediatric Nursing Skill Lab
Community Nursing Lab
Multi-Media Skill Lab
Each simulation lab has multiple programmable mannequins, including SimMan; a computer based programmable human patient simulator.
Maternal/Child & Pediatric Nursing Skill Lab.
Simulation Laboratory --
Students will participate in supervised and independent practice of selected skills, as well as previously learned techniques including
Maternal/Child & Pediatric Nursing Skill Lab.
learned techniques including
* Care of OB/GYN patients
* Labor and Delivery
* Post-partum assessment
* Initial newborn assessment
* Pediatric Assessment
Adult Health Nursing Skill list
Medication administration, IV therapy
Ambulation and transfers , Range of motion
Peri-operative assessment skills
Prevention of Infection:
aseptic technique, sterile dressings, wound care
Review of vital sign measurement
Safety: Use of safety side rails
Surgical wound care ( sterile dressings)

Advantages of Simulation in nursing :
No threat to patient safety and ethical concerns are minimized
Active learning can occur
Specific and unique patient situations can be created
Errors can be corrected and discussed immediately
Consistent & comparable experience occur for all students
Maximal amount of learning time
Experimentation and creativity are allowed
Self-evaluation is promoted
Feedback can be elicited
Decision making can be promoted effectively
The impact of VR could be even higher allows critical thinking practice for a wide range of conditions than one offered by
the traditional demonstration.
VR lab. is
at the same time technology:, a communication interface based on interactive 3D visualization, able to collect and integrate in single real-like experience different inputs and data sets.
A significant efforts are still required to move VR into commercial success and therefore routine clinical use.
Providing and adopting the Virtual Lab simulation:-
eliminates the serious risks inherent in practicing nursing care skills on live patients
Creates a stress-free learning environment that incorporates learning practice.
