A complete guide to applying the law and ethics in nursing, across settings
Useful as both a learning tool and a professional resource, Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing is a comprehensive review of legal and ethical issues for nurses at all levels of education and licensure — and in all clinical settings. It reflects the influence of the law and ethics on professional nursing, as seen in the expanding autonomous roles of nurses and changes in health care delivery and clientele. The 7th edition includes new ongoing case studies applying chapter content, a new discussion of organizational ethics, and expanded ethical scenarios and decision-making guidelines.
