Better World Theatre: Nursing

Every year, students from the Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing produce and perform a series of short plays on issues in nursing ethics, as part of the Mann Center's Better World Theatre initiative. Following each play, student facilitators lead the audience, comprising primarily student peers from the nursing school, in a discussion of the ethical issues identified in each act.
