For my ethics class we have to write a synthesis paper on an ethical issue in nursing. I chose to write about whether or not nurses should act outside of their scope of practice during emergencies. For example, if a patient needs intubated and no physican is around (and can't be around fast enough), should the nurse perform the intubation if it will save the patient's life? I'm having a lot of trouble finding information on this topic and have only found one source that is hardly helpful. Is my topic too narrow? Any suggestions on what to search when i'm looking for sources?
