Abstract

Nursing students learn a variety of skills to work in a clinic, such as dealing with patients with particular requirements, handling expensive equipment, and assisting doctors with treatments. However, a specific situation may require hands-on experience that cannot be easily conveyed through a textbook or a video, such as caring for a schizophrenic patient. Simulation has been considered as an effective method to replace observation-based clinical placement to overcome safety issues. In this paper, we investigate the possibility of employing a virtual reality (VR) learning platform for nursing students to learn how to care for schizophrenic patients. Using 360-degree video and a head-mounted display (HMD), students experienced virtual patients who have schizophrenia portrayed by professional actors. Our key contribution is in the insights about the design of educational VR applications, highlighting the potential value of VR for training students with non-technical backgrounds.
