The Open RN project is funded by a $ 2.5 million grant from the Ministry of Education to create 5 OER nursing manuals with 25 associated virtual reality scenarios. The project is led by Chippewa Valley Technical College, and the textbooks are written in collaboration with professors from Wisconsin technical colleges. Books will be reviewed nationally by nursing professors, deans, healthcare alliance members and other industry representatives to ensure content is current and accurate . Other states and colleges are encouraged to adopt and customize these books to suit their specific needs, in order to save students money by repurposing high quality Open RN base materials. The estimated maximum impact of this project for nursing students in Wisconsin Technical College nursing programs is $ 1.5 million annually in textbook savings. Other nursing programs across the country will also be able to easily “remix” textbook content to personalize their own content, potentially leading to even greater cost savings nationwide.
