UbiSim offers new VR simulations for better nursing education

UbiSim makes nursing education more inclusive. The VR platform now features transgender patients and Alzheimer's patients of different ethnicities.


Labster, the developer of UbiSim, a VR training platform for caregivers, has announced the addition of new immersive scenarios. These are designed to prepare nurses to deal sensitively and respectfully with vulnerable patient groups, particularly transgender and Alzheimer's patients.

In UbiSim, nursing students gain hands-on experience interacting with patients in a safe environment through realistic VR simulations. The VR training enables future nurses to improve their clinical judgment and communication skills.

Educators can use UbiSim to create new VR scenarios and customize existing ones without programming knowledge. They can choose from a variety of patient, family and caregiver characters representing different ethnicities. This is designed to promote cultural competency in nursing education.


Virtual reality aids nursing education

VR offers many advantages for training nurses and surgeons. It provides realistic simulation and hands-on experience in a safe environment.

VR scenarios can be adapted to the specific needs of different patient groups to promote cultural competence and respectful treatment of disadvantaged patients.


In addition to training, VR can also be used to remotely support surgeons during operations, as shown in the example of “Teleproctoring”. This could help reduce the cost and complexity of medical care and improve access to specialized surgeons.
