Between public safety and squeezed budgets, scaling up a training program is nearly impossible in a higher-ed clinical environment - unless you are Dr. Susanna Rudy, DNP, APRN, and Dr. Jeff Gordon, Ph.D., both from Vanderbilt University School of Nursing, and John Blackmon, CTO, of eLearning Brothers. As some of the earliest pioneers in immersive learning, they conquered what seemed impossible; they developed a program that affordably and safely trained a growing population of nurse practitioner students without purchasing more ultrasound machines for $100,000 each.

Now, less than two years later, state by state, the use of simulation in prelicensure nursing education is becoming a modern staple of training strategies in healthcare. Attend this session for an up-close look at what immersive learning can do. Find out why this eye-opening case study received a Platinum LearnX Award and was short-listed for Learning Technology’s Best Use of Simulations or Virtual Environments for Learning.
