Welcome to this Fourth volume of The Journal of Undergraduate Nursing Writing. This journal is a compilation of original articles written by senior nursing students in the Bachelor of Science in Nursing program at the University of Kansas School of Nursing.
The articles presented in this volume originated as assignments given in the students’ senior level classes. The original call for papers did not limit their entries to any particular classes but all papers received came from the Populations or Legal/Ethical Nursing courses. Thus the content represented here deals with legal, ethical, or population issues. Contents:
