Dr. Bensinger has initiated an Internal Review Board approved study, with the blessings of the Chief Nursing Officers of 6 local hospitals, with a goal of 200 nurses in the hospitals’ nurse residency program.
The residency program is a year of monthly classes offered to new graduates starting to work for the hospitals. Testing has started with the control group. The treatment group (who plays the game several times during their residency) will begin testing in March.
Testing before and after the residency for those playing and those not playing the game will hopefully show that critical thinking is improved after playing the game.
