The GMR office is excited to announce that the College of Nursing and Health Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire has been granted a Technology Enhancement Award for its project, SIMobile for Augmented Reality Integrated Simulation Education!
Nurse educators are using simulation to a greater degree than ever before to prepare students for their role as nurses in complex, inter-disciplinary health care systems. Recent studies have found that simulation provides high impact educational experiences that support student nurses as they develop clinical competencies and confidence in delivering care and respond to high-risk situations in a low-risk environment.
The GMR office is funding the purchase of new iPads and accessories to enable the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire, College of Nursing and Health Sciences to implement the Augmented Reality Integrated Simulation Education (ARISE) Project. ARISE relies on the use of iPads and QR codes which are attached to various locations on a manikin to retrieve and access high quality audio, video and patient and biomedical information before, during and after clinical simulation scenarios. iPads will also include appropriate National Library of Medicine apps for easy access to reliable health information.
The objectives of this project include:
