VRSim Announces First-of-its-Kind Certified Nursing Assistant Skills VR Simulator
VRNA™ offers users a portable and captivating virtual environment to practice patient care skills, traditionally done in a laboratory setting.
East Hartford, Conn. – April 5, 2022 – PRNewswire – VRSim is pleased to introduce VRNA™, an advanced and fully immersive virtual reality training system that prepares users for both in-person clinical training and the Certified Nursing Assistant (“CNA”) state exam. VRNA offers users a portable and captivating virtual environment to practice patient care skills, traditionally done in a laboratory setting. VRNA helps instructors be more efficient during the lab by supplementing their instruction and alleviating split attention during small group activities. It keeps students engaged in lab content while giving them an independent and active learning experience to practice patient care skills in a zero-risk environment.
VRNA enhances CNA programs and supports blended career pathways for entry-level healthcare careers. With VRNA, education and workforce development programs will pioneer CNA training incorporating virtual reality labs; a component supportive of diverse student enrollment and is inclusive of varying learning styles. An added benefit of this enhanced instruction is exploring remote virtual CNA classes in rural areas. Equitable learning opportunities for entry-level healthcare careers are at the forefront of our vision.
VRSim has been a champion for work-based learning since the early 2000s, when its technology was first introduced as part of career and technical education. A long-standing and ongoing goal our organization has been to foster successful development of and facilitate more work-based learning opportunities across the globe, harnessing the power of virtual reality technology.
