From the Vault: Skill Simulations for Competitive Events

Participating in a SKILL competitive event such as Nursing Assisting, Sports Medicine, or CPR!? Then this information is for you!

HOSA has prepared Simulated Skill environments for all Round 2 skill events where competitors will be immersed in a 360-degree environment to answer questions live with judges.  Working with numerous partners, HOSA has created virtual environments to replicate the hospital room, clinic, etc. Competitors will have a chance to view videos, audio files, static photos, interact with google docs, and even utilize a platform to simulate various components of the skills (think – moving your computer mouse to virtually give an injection!) All of this will take place within the simulated skill environment. Competitors will view and interact with the environment over Zoom where they will verbally give their responses to live judges!

This new and exciting way of experiencing clinical skills is only available at the VILC for those competitors who advance to Round 2 in their skill event.

For all of the details and to view a sample simulated environment, check out this video!
