LEARNING ACTIVITIES IDEA STARTERS:
- Ask students to create a timeline of a nursing concept (e.g., theories about pregnancy, disease; training).
- Ask students to use drawing or image editing software to create an ideal nursing care environment, noting the focus of the facility and reasoning for the design.
- Ask students to compare nursing practices around the world.
- Ask students to research the cultural connotation of nursing in different cultures.
- Ask students to research historical or cultural influences of nursing.
- Ask students to research intellectual property law (both copyright and patents/trademarks) as it applies to nursing.
- Ask students to interview personnel in different jobs affiliated with nursing.
- Ask students to compare the same job across different organizations, and within the same organization. Ask students to research career ladders in nursing.
- Ask students to research the total cost of a medical procedure, including facilities (e.g., utilities, maintenance), equipment (e.g., selection and purchase, training, maintenance, storage), supplies (e.g., ordering, processing, use, disposal), food (selection and purchase, storage, preparation, dissemination, clean-up and disposal), personnel (e.g., labor, training, scheduling), administration (e.g., insurance, accounting, processing).
- Ask students to research the same topic in two database aggregators (e.g., CINAHL, PubMed, MEDLINE), and compare the process and results.
- Ask students to analyze the representation of nursing in movies (see http://mariancollege.edu/blog/movies-every-nursing-student-see/).
- Ask students to research the impact of technology on nursing and nursing education.
- Ask students to create an infographic about a nursing topic.
- Ask students to create a public service announcement that is related to a nursing topic (e.g., health practice, baby care, stroke identification).
- Ask students to create a virtual museum exhibit about an aspect of nursing.
- Ask students to create a graphic novel about some aspect of nursing, such as patient-nursing relationships.
- Ask students to research how nursing has impacted wars.
- Ask students to investigate the impact of nursing in U.S. history using primary sources (e.g., the Library of Congress’s American Memory collections: http://memory.loc.gov/ammem/index.html)
- Ask students to research the impact (social, economic, environmental) of some nursing practice.
- Ask students to take photos of a nursing concept, and annotate them in terms of locale, evidence of the concept, and implications.
