Abstract

Objective: This study was conducted to evaluate the effects of the use of virtual reality simulation on the education of nursing students during the Coronavirus-2019 (COVID-19) pandemic.

Methods: This systematic review scanned studies published in Pubmed, Cochrane and Ovid databases between November 2019 and September 2022 (last search date 16 September 2022) using the keywords “virtual reality” and “nursing education” or “nurse and education” and “COVID-19” and their combinations. The content of Medical subject headings (MeSH) was used to create keywords.  Critical Appraisal Tools recommended by the Joanna Briggs Institute were used to assess the quality of the studies.  Five studies out of 1648 studies scanned were included in this study.

Results: The sample in these studies, all conducted in a quasi-experimental design, ranged from 50 to 192. In the studies reviewed, the groups using virtual reality simulation had higher self-efficacy, perception, knowledge, learning motivation, problem-solving skills, self-confidence, learning satisfaction and practical performance than other groups.

Conclusion: The results indicated that virtual reality simulation could be used effectively in student nurse education during the COVID-19 pandemic.
