Tactile VR is rooted to the core of healthcare with the founder having a background in nursing and intensive care. Founder of Tactile VR, Will Kirkpatrick, MSN, APRN, FNP-C, CCRN, CSCS personally experienced the struggles of healthcare to stay above ground. Healthcare workers shortages continue to worsen around the world while the need for healthcare continues to rise. It became obvious that the healthcare education industry is struggling to serve the healthcare workforce in order to combat the increasing number of healthcare worker shortages. 

In 2021 alone, over 91,000 qualified nursing student applicants were denied program entry due to physical space constraints and nursing instructor shortages. It is our passion at Tactile VR to create change towards the trending downward spiral of healthcare and protect our patients from preventable adverse health outcomes. We believe our role is to innovate current education capabilities with cutting-edge technology. Our solution is to mobilize healthcare education to surpass the physical constraints and improve the efficiency towards creating prepared healthcare professionals.
