Nursing Ethics

 

Nurse.com releases a new resource, the 2017 Ethics Guide 

From the welcome-

From that early and direct, “Do no harm” caveat from Florence Nightingale, professional nursing has been built on a strong base of moral principles, behavioral standards and dictates of conscience. Ethics has always been at the heart of nursing’s values and an intrinsic part of who we are and what we do.

The American public voted nursing No. 1 among 22 professions surveyed in the annual Gallup honesty/ethics poll for 15 straight years.

We should all be proud of that achievement. But nurses face difficult questions and ethical dilemmas all the time. We deal with privacy and confidentiality concerns; informed patient and surrogate consent questions; healthcare proxy and advanced care directive decisions; artificial life support conflicts; and so much more.

Ethics in nursing is always a trending topic, and nurses need information from expert sources to help them care for their patients and families. Each page of this guide will provide you with the knowledge you need.
