Patient Assignment Game

The Patient Assignment Game was envisioned by Robin Wood in the Connell School of Nursing. Dr. Wood wanted to create an interactive simulation for post-Masters-level nurse educators. Simulating a clinical environment, users practice making patient assignments. Users play the game by pairing hypothetical students with patients on a typical clinical day. They also have the ability to revise the assignments when unexpected events ensue.
