Ethical Dilemmas’ in Nursing


As Nurses we experience many ethical dilemmas’ in the clinical setting which may range from initial emergency care all the way to discharge planning.  However, it is the art of nursing to display compassion and respect for every patient and family during all interactions.   It is important to understand the Nursing Code of Ethics and how to advocate for those unable to advocate for themselves.  In doing so, we must protect their right to self determination, decision making while promoting health and healing.
