Abstract: The recent rapid changes in technology around the globe has facilitated fast and easy information and communication processes. Using technology in promoting teaching has become a trend in education and poses a promising alternative to traditional teaching and learning. This study aimed to assess the effectiveness of inclusion of two methods of technology (clickers& games) in classroom teaching of nursing students on their academic outcomes. Quantitative approachwas employed and an experimental design was used to test the two methods and their effect on student learning. Onehundred students in second year of General Nursing and Midwifery programme were randomly allocated to three groups. The first group used clickers, secondgrouphadgames and the third groupwas the control groupand had standard teaching method. Data collection was done over a period of threeweeks. The intervention was provided by the principal investigator in different classrooms and at different.....

|Title||:||The Susceptibility Pattern of Urinary Tract Isolates of Escherichia Coli|
|Authors||:||ENWURU Chika Paulinus || OTOKUNEFOR Kome || OTOKUNEFOR, Tosanwunmi Vincent|
Abstract: Background:Escherichia coli is the major cause of urinary tract infections (UTI) of all ages and gender. The treatment usually follows a known regimenfrom experience with similar infections over the years. However, the emergence of antimicrobial resistance worldwide has rendered this empirical approach unreliable in the treatment of UTI E. coli, hence the need to strictly determine the antimicrobial susceptibility pattern of each isolate for effective chemotherapy. This study was conducted to isolate and identify E. coli from urine specimens and to determine their antimicrobial susceptibility patterns. Materials and methods:One hundred and twenty-five urine specimens were collected from patients,processed by standard bacteriological techniques.....
