Why Ethics Matter: The Practical Aspects of the Code of Ethics for Nurses

​Nurses regularly face patient care situations that can challenge their personal and professional moral code. These situations not only have implications for the safety and well-being of your patients and their families but also for your own personal well-being.These ethically challenging situations can be particularly difficult during your early years as an RN. The Code of Ethics for Nurses can help you make appropriate and effective decisions that respect your patients’ needs and rights while also maintaining your professional ethical standards.

The American Nurses Association (ANA) is offering a free on-demand webinar for both ANA members and non-members.  Registration is required for all viewers, including individuals and groups.  After registering, you may watch this webinar anytime, anywhere as many times as you like.

This on-demand webinar will use a case-based analysis using an ethical decision-making framework that focuses on four critical areas: Moral awareness, moral motivation, moral judgement, and moral action. Real-world cases will provide action-oriented approaches for ensuring you are:

  • Caring for all individuals and respecting human dignity
  • Protecting patient health and safety by challenging questionable practices
  • Promoting social justice and identifying racism in the profession
  • Supporting an ethical environment and a culture of excellence
  • Respecting your duty to self, versus the duty to others, when there is a considerable environmental risk

After viewing this webinar, you will have a stronger connection to these approaches so you can easily use them in your day-to-day nursing practice. Provisions in the Code of Ethics for Nurses and ANA Ethics position statements will be highlighted to illuminate how these concepts can be used in a practical way.
