Abstract

Values clarification for nursing practice is one of the most challenging aspects of nursing education. Use of electronic meeting software has been demonstrated to be effective in overcoming typical barriers to student growth. Inhibitions related to fear of censorship are overcome by anonymity of the system. Monopolizing by dominant members is controlled when the ability to speak in parallel exists. Overall, this application of electronic meeting software in the classroom demonstrated involvement of all students in an innovative approach to understand the effect of personal values on health policy development in a graduate nursing course.
