Virtual Ward


Virtual Ward is an educational game idea proposed by the School of Health Sciences in NYP, which I was assigned to work on during my Final Year Project. The goal of Virtual Ward is to give budding trainee nurses a simulated experience on the daily life of a nurse in an hospital while at the same time providing them with situational tests, like what to do when a patient is having breathing difficulties.
