I on Education: IUPUC Using VR
IUPU Columbus is a pioneer in the nation with the use of virtual reality technology in its nursing simulation lab. One scenario that was developed for the lab is both timely and common to the region—neonatal abstinence syndrome, which involves an infant born to a mother addicted to drugs. UITS Executive Director of IT Services Bill Fields and IUPUC Director of Regional Healthcare Pipeline Carrie Shaver explain how the technology helps students prepare for real-life situations.
