What a wonderful way to see advanced practice nursing as neither black nor white but instead as a myriad of colors in which to hone principled and just care as our Code of Nursing intends.

Infused with wisdom and clarity, this textbook is a must-read for APRNs of all practice environments and levels of experience. As a clinical ethicist, I was deeply impressed by how much I learned within the pages of this book.

Healthcare delivery can present ethical conflicts and dilemmas for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs)—nurses who already have a myriad of responsibilities in caring for patients.

Ethical Case Studies for Advanced Practice Nurses improves APRNs' agility to resolve ethical quandaries encountered in primary care, hospital-based, higher education, and administration beyond community settings. Through case studies examining various types of ethical conflicts, the authors empower APRNs and students with the critical knowledge and skills they need to handle even the most complex dilemmas in their practice. By applying a set of criteria and framework, this book guides APRNs to use critical thinking to make ethically sound decisions.
