From politicians to school teachers, ethics is a sensitive issue affecting all walks of life. Nurses are no exception. In fact, nursing carries the automatic assumption that nurses know exactly what to do, what is right ethically, and what they are being told to do.
Nursing Ethics In Everyday Practice provides a framework that staff nurses can implement to resolve the ethical dilemmas they frequently encounter in everyday practice. The nursing ethics book is a guide to communication and ethics consultation. It will provide guidelines on current ethical challenges, and how to have moral courage.
