Guess what? I have pretty much the same assignment you do! But, we don't get a choice of opting out of the oral presentation. But, it wasn't a biggie for me, I'm just talking in front of my class.
Our instructor gave us some possible topics: medication errors, nursing shortage, anthrax, smallpox, burnout in nursing
I am doing medication errors, so if anybody sees a great journal article somewhere (has to be professional journal < 5yrs old), I'd love to see it!
Hope my list helps you! Let me know if there's anything else you need.
