STRATEGIES FOR TEACHING NURSING RESEARCH Small Group Games for Teaching Nursing Research Cheryl Tatano Beck Faculty who teach nursing research are continually searching for new and creative methods to hold students' attention in their research courses and also to stimulate students' interest in nursing research itself. This article describes two such games that have been devised by the author for use in an undergraduate research course, a crossword puzzle of basic research terminology and a scavenger hunt of research items.

R.N. students bring rich backgrounds of clinical experience to a research course that the generic nursing students often lack. If an environment is provided in which R.N. and generic nursing students can interact together, the R.N. students may feel more comfortable about sharing examples of clinical problems they have encoun- tered.
