About Michael D Bumbach

TEACHING

Dr. Bumbach teaches both undergraduate and graduate nursing courses, concentrating in the DNP program as the FNP Track Coordinator. He is a board certified FNP, with 15 years of clinical practice. Within his teaching assignment he has studied the use of technology within nursing education and patient use. Examples include: a nurse triage virtual reality communication application, the use of video assessment for physical examination, the use of simulation for palliative care nursing education, and a scoping review of augmented reality applications for patient education/health literacy.

RESEARCH

Dr. Bumbach’s research focus includes the use of advanced technology related to nursing education and patient education/health literacy. Specifically, his focus is on the use of virtual experiences, including augmented reality and virtual reality (VR). The use of virtual experience methodologies is increasing in nursing education, patient care, and patient health education/literacy. Evidence-based research aimed at evaluating the utility and benefit of these virtual experiences is essential as the sophistication and use of innovative virtual experiences increases.

SERVICE

As the disciplines of nursing and nursing education evolve, the use of virtual experiences is emerging as a major tool for nursing education. Current technology has advanced the functionality of virtual experiences, increasing its ability to enhance traditional nursing education. However, there is scant research testing the utility and efficacy of virtual experiences in nursing education; Dr. Bumbach aims to fill that knowledge gap by identifying how best to enrich traditional nursing educational methodology through meaningful virtual experiences.
