That news prompted me to go over to the UTA virtual campus and take a look.  It is well worth visiting. Here   are a couple of reports about it:

School of Nursing
Entry

-
While I was there, I took a stroll around the campus for the School of Nursing.  They are offering continuing education credits, I noted.  The right move. I would say.   Here is Texas, lots of nurses have jobs the put them a long way from nowhere.  It is a long drive to the nearest education facility that could offer continuing education in a physical place.
-
Here is an instructional video I found on display there:
Education: Second Life Nursing Simulation
-
Virtual reality comes right to your office.  Or to your house.  And a nurse is already a professional, with professional learning skills and ongoing professional experience to integrate with the continuing education.
-
-
Smart hospitals are the kind of thing that make you need continuing education.
-
-
So drop by the UT Arlington campus in Second Life and take a look at what this School of Nursing is doing. This demo will continue education for lots of people.  And not just for nurses.
