[Research Presentation] At a mid-sized university in the Mississippi Delta, difficult content concerning the law and ethical dilemmas in nursing was approached in a new way. The complex issues involved in the nursing and the law, morals, and ethics have traditionally been difficult for students to grasp and internalize. Nursing education literature has shown that when challenged to think ôoutside the boxö students retain information at a higher level. Eighty-seven sophomore baccalaureate students were presented with case studies involving either ethical dilemmas, legal issues, or a combination of the two. The students were challenged to resolve the issue provided utilizing resources from the legal, biomedical, and/or ethical disciplines. Students worked in collaborative learning groups to accomplish their goals and were allowed to utilize creative strategies, i.e., the creation of movies, skits, etc., in order to instruct their class regarding ethics and the law. Data concerning the success of the ethical/legal project was collected utilizing an evaluation tool completed by the students. The success of the project was overwhelmingly positive.
