Activity Summary

Nurse's Escape is a Immersive Virtual Reality game that simulates an escape room based on the components of the Sepsis Bundle. A recluse millionaire presents with abnormal vital signs and it is up to you, the nurse to identify the problem and treat appropriately.  Participants must be able to problem solve and be knowledgeable of current nursing care. The purpose is to supplement nurse's lecture-style curriculum with an interactive way to test nurse’s Sepsis knowledge. Sepsis is one of the leading causes of deaths and hospitalizations yearly, so equipping nurses with the right skills and information to treat sepsis in a timely manner can save lives and money.
