Nurse Education in Second Life

"This is one of the areas that training for RNs is occurring in Second Life, a virtual world. Students also apply theory by creating and manipulating 3D objects. Planned meetings with the numerous support groups are used to increase the students awareness and empathy of those with health issues. Students also experience real people with different cultures, nationalities, and languages in this virtual world."

An interesting look into the future
