I was looking at something oh I think it there was an article somewhere when I was browsing around here that was just talking about whether or not the long shifts that are typical of nursing and nurses and doctors are helpful or harmful to patients so that might be a debate and I’ve had a lot of students in the Health Sciences come up with some great topics really specific ones about whether or not ob/gyn doctors are recommending too many c-sections or whether you know doctors are delivering premature babies and neonatal too early I don’t it just I mean they’ve really gotten involved with them and I feel like I’ve learned a lot about the health sciences and nursing in particular because of all our nursing or pre-nursing students so it’s great to see students who take an interest in something.

And then they research it and I learn along with them as they’re researching so you know finding a trade magazine or a website that deals with your particular major as you’re going through is good too it’s a good way pro/con is a good website to scout around on so pro con org if you click on that that’s got all these different controversial issues that you can click on and the wonderful thing about this I think is is that it really breaks it down in an easy-to-understand way so like let’s click on minimum wage should the minimum wage be increased so it gives you a research question and then it even gives you kind of a brief summary of what the major reasons for and against or yes and no to the question are and it really helps to give you like a quick synopsis that you can say wow if I mentor reading about this topic based on this webpage that I’m probably going to be able to use this from my topic but if you get bored just reading half this page then this is probably not the topic for you one other.

Two other places that should be useful to you and again you can always come back if I’m going too fast it are to library databases actually I’m going to start with just one so you click on libraries click on databases go to oh and scroll down there’s a database called opposing viewpoints in context prompts you to put in your borrower ID which is your X ID and your pin password which is your six digit birthdate and you should be able to do this from home any time of the day is to get in here and this database specializes in debatable issues so it kind of like pro/con it has them divided into categories where you can just click around if something interests you or you can just always go to browse issues and it’ll give you like a laundry list of issues you can click on please stop this and so you can click around there if something interests you.
