Connolly, B. (2018) How virtual reality is transforming learning at the University of Newcastle, CIO, 8 March

 

This article includes a couple of nice, short videos demonstrating the use of AR and VR in a University of Newcastle nurses’ program in Australia.

 

The first one, below, demonstrates the use for breech positioning and placenta replacement:

The second demonstrates a neonatal resucitation scenario when a newborn baby stops breathing.

These are very good examples of the power of AR and VR to enable students to practice and learn in a safe environment without danger to patients. The technology is accessible via mobile phones or tablets so students can practice in their own time as well as in the VR studio with an instructor.
