Game-Based Learning and Nursing Students’ Clinical Judgment in Postpartum Hemorrhage: A Pilot Study
Nurse educators are searching for ways to deliver and evaluate the clinical judgment model (CJM) into undergraduate education to adequately prepare students for the Next Generation NCLEX project.
A game-based learning (GBL) activity, including seven postpartum hemorrhage (PPH) stations, was developed and implemented in an undergraduate nursing course. Following the design of the Minute to Win It® game show, teams of students participated in timed challenges to facilitate engagement with the CJM.
Student scores improved significantly for every aspect of the CJM applied to PPH (recognition, analysis, action, evaluation) from the pre- to posttest after using the PPH Minute to Win It. The teaching–learning strategy was positively received by students for the purposes of enhancing engagement and retaining knowledge.
