Senior nursing students in the last semester of a community college nursing program take the Health Education Systems Incorporated (HESI) Exit Exam to evaluate their ability to pass National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). The objective of this project was to implement a virtual game simulation on pain assessment and management to improve scores related to the concepts of pain comparing two different cohorts. Senior nursing students were offered the virtual game simulation and could voluntarily report attempts and results through a Google ™ Form.
