Abstract

Nursing faculty faces many challenges in preparing today's digitally native students for new clinical settings. The use of Augmented Reality(AR) may offer a solution to overcome these challenges. The purpose of this project was to evaluate the efficiency of using AR 360 photospheres to orient undergraduate nursing students to new clinical settings.360 photospheres of an obstetric unit were created by the faculty. A non-randomized experimental pilot design was utilized to evaluate the efficiency of using AR 360 photospheres.The results from the two groups were compared. Post surveys from students and faculty were positive regarding satisfaction, efficiency, and time spent in orientation. The ability for students to view and virtually tour clinical settings multiple times through an on-demand process was reported as a helpful and efficient method of preparing students for new clinical settings. Time and efficiency gains were noted by students and faculty members through the use of AR.
