Yu-Yuan Fang*, Yish-Yuan Lin and Li-Ting Lu

The acquisition of nursing skills is one of the essential learning competencies for nursing students. One way of promoting teaching through competitive play this is via the Team Game Tournament (TGT) method, a teaching strategy based on the team- based learning approach that creates a lively and fun tournament-like atmosphere to facilitate learning. Pedagogy built on the theoretical foundations of the TGT’s composition and principles; the activities of a three-week medical-surgical nursing technology course were formulated to include teaching plan design instructions, TGT steps and procedures, and skill assessment tools. After testing the TGT method on a group of 48 students, through pedagogical design proved that it could enhance learning motivation and participation, cultivate critical thinking, and facilitate research tool development. While this learning method has fixed rules for learning content, it can still effectively hone the cognitive and critical thinking skills of students and enable them to become better nurses.
