Search the Internet for a current story related to one of the course topics. Topics may be ethical, legal, political, or professional in nature. The story must be no older than 1 year. Do not use wikis, Wikipedia, Facebook, or other social media. Instead, look for stories that may be found in, but not limited to, online news sites, professional organizations’ issues pages, or journal editorials.
Identify the name of the site you selected, its URL/web address, and your summary in the discussion. Indicate the date when the story was posted.
Write two to three well-developed paragraphs that summarize the main points of the story. Determine what issue is reflected in the story. Share your viewpoint about the story as it relates to nurses and the nursing profession. Make sure you review the grading criteria in the rubric. See Grading below.
