Nursing Professor Judy LeFlore has earned national recognition from the 2012 Computerworld Honors Laureate program for her work using 3D gaming technology to teach students about in-hospital pediatric care.
Dr. LeFlore’s project “Can Game Play Teach Student Nurses How to Save Lives?” explored whether a 3D video game could teach nursing students how to respond to patients in a clinical setting. She and Assistant Professor Mindi Anderson worked with Marjorie Zielke, assistant professor of arts and technology at UT Dallas, to develop a game scenario called “iNursingRN: Respiratory Distress.”
The work was backed by $250,000 in funding from the UT System’s Transforming Undergraduate Education grant program. Dr. Zielke and LeFlore will receive the award in June in Washington, D.C.
