The preparation of students to provide end-of-life care is a challenge for nurse educators. Beginning nursing students benefit from the opportunity to confront this care area in a learning environment before the reality of the situation in the clinical area. End-of-life care is provided to meet the physiological, psychological, social, and spiritual needs of the dying individual. An innovated use of virtual reality and simulation is combined to facilitate the process of learning and practicing delivery of care to those at the end-of life. Immersing students using technology is a strategy to teach humanistic delivery of care.
