In a 1-to-3-page reflective essay, consider how anthropologists study modern media, and consider how you, in your nursing career, see yourself using modern media professionally.

Think critically, as anthropologists do.

· First, describe in your essay how anthropologists study modern media.

· Then, apply those observations regarding ways anthropologists study modern media and describe ways nurses do or could use modern media professionally.

· Describe ways you, as a nurse, could use modern media professionally.

· What would be some potential benefits of the use of modern media to the modern nurse?

· What would be some potential drawbacks? How might such media use affect the nurse-and-patient relationship?

· Integrate the textbook reading in your reflection, using concepts, quotes, and/or paraphrases and citations, from both the “Doing Fieldwork” Chapter 3 by Nelson and the “Media Anthropology” Chapter 16 by Peake. Paraphrase or quote and cite from at least one scholarly, outside source to support your reflections, also.
