Abstract

Introduction: Integrating virtual reality (VR) in education is emerging as a transformative tool to improve practical learning. This proposal asks about its application within the training of certified nursing assistant to improve students' practical skills in training. Objectives: The main objective is to assess whether VR technology can improve understanding of complex concepts and skills in nursing education. This involves evaluating the effectiveness of VR in fostering meaningful, self-directed learning experiences that potentially prepare students more effectively for the health workforce. Methods: Implementing a pilot VR program within a controlled educational environment is proposed. The impact of this integration will be assessed through surveys and analysis of academic performance, focusing on the acquisition of professional skills and competencies. Results: Expected outcomes include greater student participation and better learning outcomes. The work highlights the benefits of VR in improving in-depth understanding of procedures and concepts through immersive experiences. Conclusions: The expected benefits after the incorporation of VR in nursing training include an improvement in the professional qualifications of students and an innovation through the introduction of immersive learning methodologies. Despite the potential challenges of its implementation, the results are expected to support the integration of VR as a complementary educational tool, reducing the gap between traditional learning and technological advancement in nursing education.
