Grades of nursing students during nursing case presentation can be improved if audiovisuals are selected appropriately and are use effectively.   PowerPoint presentation can greatly enhance learning inside the classroom if done properly. Gone are the days when we use, Manila paper and marking pens to make audiovisuals for our presentation.

Here are some tips that my students can use in making PowerPoint presentations.

  • Font size should be 24 to 30. Arial is preferred. Use a single type of font for most of the presentation. For impact, underline or make the font bold.
  • For bullet points, use the 6 x 6 Rule.  One thought per line with no more than 6 words per line and no more than 6 lines per slide. No more than 6-8 words per line.
  • Capitalize titles, 35 to 45-font size
  • Do not use light colored text, black and blue are very readable. Avoid dark backgrounds
  • Always have a dry run of what you are to present. Have your peripherals ready, wireless mouse and extension cord is a must.
  • Check the spelling and grammar of your text.
  • Give a brief overview of the topic at the start.  Then present the information.  At the end, review important points.

There is always a room for improvement. Its knowledge ,attitude and skills in nursing
