Need ideas for Nursing Legal/Ethical Presentation

  1. I am a 4th semester nursing student with a 2 hour presentation assigned to cover the topics of legal and ethical issues in nursing. I have most of the presentation finished, but cannot think of any class activities other than questions and case studies. Anybody have any different or fun ideas? Thank you

    You could write a little skit about a particular ethical dilemma, or a situation that applies to the topic you are presenting on, and have your friends in your class or even random classmates come up and act it out. You could make the skit interactive with the rest of the class and have the "actors" pause at certain moments so you can ask your classmates what they would do in such a situation. You could even show alternate endings, depending on how your classmates choose to proceed in your made-up situation.

    Some of my classmates did things like this during their presentations and it worked out well for them. Just a thought! Good luck.

    Perhaps a mock trial?

    If you have the time to plot that skit out lol... Good luck!

    You could stage a debate? Split the class in two, give them an issue and make one side 'for' and the other against?

    The mock trial isnt a bad idea either! You could stage your own trial of Robert Latimer or something like that!
