7th edition

Overview

For courses in nursing law and ethics.

A complete guide to applying the law and ethics in nursing, across settings
Useful as both a learning tool and a professional resource, Pearson eText for 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.

Pearson eText allows educators to easily share their own notes with students so they see the connection between their reading and what they learn in class — motivating them to keep reading, and keep learning. Portable access lets students study on the go, even offline. And, reading analytics offer insight into how students use the eText, helping educators tailor their instruction.

NOTE: Pearson eText is a fully digital delivery of Pearson content. This ISBN is for the standalone Pearson eText access card. In addition to this access card, you will need a course invite link, provided by your instructor, to register for and use Pearson eText.
