Create a 12–20-slide PowerPoint presentation for teaching a legal or ethical issue pertinent to nurse educators.
As nurses we are all, no doubt, very aware of the myriad of legal and ethical issues in any health care setting. We are familiar with licensing for health care professionals, perhaps, carry our own malpractice insurance, and have been cautioned by our employing institutions to always follow policy and procedures. Nursing education is no different; there are specific legal and ethical issues that are of concern to nurse educators.
Additionally, nurse educators are often called upon to teach others about specific legal and ethical issues. This can create an interesting balance between adhering to the legal and ethical responsibility of the nurse educator’s role, while also providing enough context and real-world evidence to help assist others in learning about specific legal and ethical issues.
