UNB offers augmented reality nursing training in Miramichi, Moncton regions


The University of New Brunswick’s Learn Where You Live program is now offering virtual registered nursing certification training for licensed practical nurses (LPNs) in the Miramichi and Moncton regions. The program uses a virtual, augmented reality learning technology called Spectral. Horizon Health Network and New Brunswick Community College will offer onsite clinical education to the participating LPNs. The program is supported with up to $487K from the Government of New Brunswick. “Flexibility while studying is important to many students, and we are confident by expanding local possibilities, more will be able to choose a career in nursing,” said NB Minister of Post-Secondary Education, Training and Labour Arlene Dunn.
