Last year was the year the world had an unprecedented coronavirus outbreak. Covid-19 pandemic has caused many changes in many areas of society. Nursing practice
education is also facing the challenge of replacing the existing face-to-face practice by introducing a practical training method that utilizes technology.
Practical education using virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) is already expanding the possibility of its usage as an educational method
in various fields including health care. For example, in a virtual space, students can conduct self-directed learning by exposing themselves to repetitive
experiences and skills at anytime and anywhere, and evaluate and reflect the results.
