Course Details

Overview

Nurses are increasingly caught between conflicting value systems. Every day, nurses are faced with complex ethical pressures. These pressures influence their day-to-day practice and patient care outcomes. It is essential for healthcare environments to balance virtues and values central to the nursing profession to support nursing practice. The American Nurses Association established the Code of Ethics for Nurses in 1950 to support the ethical obligation of nursing and it has recently been amended to reflect the ever-changing health care environment.

A nurse’s knowledge and understanding of the Code of Ethics for Nurses can arm a nurse with the power to be a major influencer in day-to-day decisions that are made regarding patient care outcomes. This course discusses how the Code of Ethics for Nurses supports nurses in their daily practice. Discover new frameworks and policies for ethical analysis and decision-making and everyday strategies nurses should use to create ethical work environments.
