Teaching About Legal and Ethical Issues


  • 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.

    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. Following are  some of the specific areas of which nurses working in education need to  be well aware:
  • Faculty rights and responsibilities.
  • Student rights.
  • Clinical evaluation of students.
  • Academic dishonesty.
  • Family Education Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
  • In addition, it is also important to understand the responsibility  of faculty regarding information about students. This is important for  both academic faculty and clinical faculty supervising students in  clinical areas.
    As in clinical practice, documentation of concerns and issues that arise in educational settings can be very important.

  •  Assessment Instructions
    In this assessment, you will create a PowerPoint presentation of  12–20 slides that you could use to teach a group about a legal or  ethical issue related to nursing or nursing education. To do so, you  will select a case from the Nursing Education Legal and Ethical  Scenarios media piece, linked in the Resources under the Capella  Multimedia heading to focus on.
  • Review the case and take time to reflect on the change that needs to occur and the group that you will be addressing.
  • Research what the group needs to know to improve the legal or ethical situation that has occurred.
  • Use a minimum of seven references, of which at least five should come from peer-reviewed sources.
  • As you conduct research, synthesize information that will be needed to evoke a change in the situation.‹
    Create a 12–20 slide PowerPoint presentation that you would use to  teach about the legal or ethical situation and to create change related  to that situation.
    Note: You must include 2–4 context slides. These  are additional slides that provide contextual information for this  assessment. Follow the guidelines for the two types of slides below.
