All levels of simulation fidelity or reality have become an integral component in the preparation of healthcare workers for practice in recent years. This new digital technology increases new skill retention and performance through immersive engagement while learning. The digital environment offers reproducible conditions that can contribute to the development of non-technical skills of communication, teamwork, and decision-making, essential in today’s healthcare (Peddle, Bearman & Nestel, 2016).
Virtual simulation has been used in the airline industry for many years, requiring new pilots to train on flight simulators before commanding a passenger flight (Alinier, Hunt, Gordon & Harwood, 2006).
The United States military has used virtual worlds to train military personnel for disaster and emergency preparedness (Foronda, Godsall & Trybulski, 2013). Simulation has also been used in the preparation of physicians and the training of nurse anesthetists (Bremner, Aduddell, Bennett & VanGeest, 2006).
A team of Nurse Educators and Instructional Designers created Prioritization of Care to provide a learning environment unique to nursing and complementary to existing curricula.
