In nursing care, correct execution of interventions is crucial, for example, when assisting a patient moving from the bed to a wheelchair. Such interventions promote both the patients' well-being and the nurses' long-term health. Thus, learning the correct techniques forms an important part of skills training in undergraduate nursing education. However, to address the stu-dents' learning needs, innovative training methods are required that facilitate effective self-directed training as addition to supervision by tutors. The rapid development in information and communication technologies for example of Head Mounted Displays (smart glasses) raises questions about their use in nursing education. Especially the practical training seems to be an area with large potential. The design of applications regarding acceptance, feasibility and effectiveness must be explored first. We used a Human Centred Design process consisting of a survey, design thinking workshops to develop prototypes and an evaluation to answers these questions and the results are promising.
