Computer science is being introduced in education at an accelerated pace, thus forcing educators and students to become familiar with the technology. The objective of this project was aimed at the development and evaluation of the education software, The Child and the Medication. The program uses multimedia resources in four topics: the child, the medication, who administers it, and medication administration. The evaluation showed good acceptance of the program, with most of the items receiving excellent approval. The emphasis in this report is on the importance of teaching strategy development using computational means to teach nursing, thus capacitating the nurses of the next millennium.
