WorldViz PRISM Virtual Simulation Room for Nursing Education at California Baptist University

Client: California Baptist University College of Nursing

Use Case: Nursing Education

The College of Nursing at California Baptist University prepares nursing students in a state-of-the-art WorldViz PRISM immersive training room before they enter clinical practice

Offering nursing students a safe but highly realistic immersive training environment where nursing skills can be refined before entering the clinical world is becoming a new standard for the most forward-thinking medical education institutions.

WorldViz VR experts provided California Baptist University College of Nursing with a PRISM immersive virtual simulation room including seven ultra-short-throw projectors. Educators and students can now transform their large training room into a variety of content-rich scenario training environments  that they supplement with real props including mannequins and medical equipment.

Embedded contextual information can be triggered by simply touching the room walls or using a tablet controller. Controllable lighting and a sound system add to the realism of the immersive training experience. An included 360 degree camera allows educators and students to capture scenes from real clinical and non-clinical environments and then use the content for creating new training scenarios with the easy-to-use PRISM software.

Sarah E. Pearce PhD, CHSE, Director of Simulation and Standardized Patients for the IPE-LRC College of Nursing, explains why she loves the WorldViz PRISM virtual simulation room:

“The PRISM system allows our students to apply and practice knowledge, skills, and attitudes related to nursing education in a realistic and highly immersive environment. PRISM provides our students with the opportunity to make mistakes, receive targeted feedback and then correct those mistakes in a safe learning environment prior to their entry into clinical, which in turn helps to improve patient quality and safety outcomes, through simulation based learning and education.”
