This is a VERY long list and in fact, many of these cases would not be appropriate for nursing. BUT, if you use the keyword search and you spend a little time here, there are several that are great for nurses! You just have to do a little fishing, depending on the particular content you are covering.
The following are all NEW!! Internet resources for case studies addressing various diseases.
Various case studies.
Loyola University School of Medicine
Clinical Case of the Month
LSU, New Orleans
Harvard is so generous in sharing their teaching resources! This one is from Lieberman’s Learning Lab. Although there is an emphasis on radiology, cases are presented using a sort of mini seminar approach with Power point slides. Systems include cardiovascular, musculoskeletal, genitourinary, respiratory, gastrointestinal and head and neck. You really need to spend some time browsing these if you are teaching in these content areas. There is LOTS of great content here that’s well presented!!
