Ultrasound Training by Vanderbilt University School of Nursing

“How Teaching Ultrasound Skills to Vanderbilt University’s Nurse Practitioner Students Saved $425,000 with CenarioVR”

Training Challenge: 

Vanderbilt University had limited opportunities to effectively train its growing Nursing School enrollment due to rising medical equipment costs and an increased focus on patient safety.


Reduce the amount of hands-on ultrasound machine training time needed to avoid purchasing more equipment and prevent costly damage to the machines.


Eliminate wasted hands-on training time by providing a virtual environment for navigating the machine, understanding its output, and learning how to effectively interact with patients.


Vanderbilt University avoided the need to purchase five additional ultrasound machines valued at $425,000 ($85,000+ each) to support its growing enrollment.
