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.

Objective: 

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

Strategy: 

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.

Result:

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

To protect patient privacy, a video, which masks the patient’s identity, is shown in lieu of the actual immersive learning course in CenarioVR.
