Abstract

Nurses regularly are faced with ethical situations in their practice. Despite potentially having had as part of their educational programs an ethics course or specific classes addressing ethical issues, many nurses still feel ill-equipped when ethical dilemmas occur. This article discusses the Code for Nurses as a resource that nurses can use for determining the appropriate action(s) when an ethical dilemma arises.
