Every day, nurses are faced with complex ethical pressures that influence their day-to-day practice and patient care outcomes. ANA established the Code of Ethics for Nurses in 1950 to support the ethical obligation of nursing, and it has been amended to reflect the ever-changing health care environment.
A nurse’s knowledge and understanding of the latest Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements (The Code) 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 provides information on how The Code supports nurses in their daily practice. Discover new frameworks and policies for ethical analysis and decision making, and strategies nurses should use to create ethical work environments.
