Labster, a virtual labs and interactive science platform, recently announced it will acquire UbiSim, a virtual reality training platform for nursing.

“With this strategic addition, Labster is well-positioned to play an important role in the future of nursing education and to help address the critical challenge of the global nursing shortage, estimated at a shortfall of 5.9 million nurses by the World Health Organization,” said Michael Bodekaer Jensen, CEO and Co-Founder of Labster.

Founded in Denmark in 2012, Labster is a learning platform with an ecosystem of science learning resources, including a metaverse of virtual science simulations, lab manuals, lab reports, and 3D animated videos.

UbiSim, founded in Switzerland in 2017, offers an immersive VR training platform that enables nursing students to develop clinical reasoning, collaboration, and communication skills by engaging with real-world scenarios and lifelike patients in a safe learning environment. 

According to its website, its clients include higher institutions like Illinois State University, Université de Montréal, and University of Regina.
