If your major is nursing, you will create a site based on some aspect of nursing that is important to you. If you are an Economics major, then find something you feel may benefit others when dealing with the current state of the economy. Whichever medium you choose, you must layer your information by linking to other appropriate sites for support. One of your links should be your own Module 4 assignment of the digitized text. Remember that this is a professional creation, so you should take care to keep it based on factual information, not opinion.
