This article reports the use of a successful strategy for teaching non-critical care nurses how to safely administer critical cardiovascular drugs. The use of a gaming technique to accomplish this, accompanied by a caricature case study, is described in detail. Participants' evaluations evidenced a high degree of satisfaction and enjoyment in learning the pharmacological content. Readers can adapt this game to other learning topics for rapid and effective learning of material specific to their institutions.
