The final project is a point/counter-point presentation. You will need to provide a substantive point and counterpoint (pro and con for the issue) argument regarding a legal or ethical issue in health care that impacts the nursing profession. The final position the student takes on the issue should be strongly defended, concise, and clearly articulated. Key elements of the legal or ethical issue are identified. To support the argument, the student will provide a substantive example. This can be a legal case, a case from the media, or a clinical scenario. Any topic from the course may be used. This project requires APA formatting and requires at least 4 references.
The paper will analyze an ethical issue (chosen by the student) in nursing and will provide the student with the opportunity to support their argument. The paper will be written in APA format and require at least 4 references and be approximately 3 pages of full contents.
***Please make sure that you provide both sides of the issues (pro and con) to provide a detailed evaluation of both sides of the topic. Then a final position the student takes on the issue should be strongly defended, concise, and clearly articulated. This is a tactic utilized in preparing and presenting legal cases, and learning to see both sides of an ethical or legal issue is a valuable skill. Please follow the rubric.
