Abstract. Part of the higher education (HE) experience of our healthcare students is to implement theoretical lessons learned within a practice environment – most often within the country’s National Health Service (NHS). With the emergence of the worldwide C19 pandemic, HE institutions had to reconfigure ways to support students to experience practical elements of their course online or via simulation. With the help of external funding from Health Education England (HEE), Bournemouth University piloted a variety of simulated projects across a variety of professions including: paramedicine and child and adult nursing. Students were able to access simulated skills via online and virtual reality (VR) resources, contributing to their learning experience during a worldwide pandemic. This has created a platform for further investment and educational pedagogy around simulation in healthcare provision, contributing to workforce development and future proofing educational establishment.
