A curriculum builder geared towards students and nurses in medical-surgical specialty. Level is for students who have completed at least half of an adult health or medical surgical course or registered nurses.
A roll of the dice provides different diverse patients every time. A spinner dictates drawing question cards or rolling more dice as the game plays, constantly changing the scenarios.
Teams think through situations solving problems based on the patient’s patho, pharm, labs, and changing scenarios as they compete for “Real Nurse (RN)”, “Status Improved” and “Suffered Setback” cards—team with the most “Status Improved” wins!
Students must apply all of the principles of the nursing process—assessment, diagnosis, planning, implementation and evaluation as they bounce ideas off of each other in a non-threatening environment.
Instructors facilitate the game and take advantage of Socratic “teaching moments” as they occur in the game as if they were on a unit. The real winner is solving problems and learning in a fun and non-threatening manner!
