Serious Play

After the COVID 19 shutdown, our students lost the opportunity to meet in person to complete their lab and clinical skills requirements; our state of the art sim labs sat empty and dark. Students were forced to delay their graduation, and we vowed to find a way to make sure that if this happens again we will be better prepared to support those hands on skills for which solutions were lacking. Virtual Reality became that solution.
