NUR 440X - Nursing Ethics

3 Credits

Critical issues and ethical decisions facing nurses will be explored from the perspective of a Christian Worldview. Beginning with an overview of ethics philosophy and theory, biblical principles are applied to bio-ethical issues and dilemmas, using a process of ethical decision-making. Ethical principles will be incorporated to emphasize respect for human dignity in health care, including social justice. In addition, case studies and simulation involving patient issues, personal and professional integrity and accountability will be explored based on the Code of Ethics for Nurses and other professional standards of nursing practice. (Also HUM 440X  )
