ABSTRACT: Preparing students for ethical situations they will face in practice should be incorporated into nursing curricula, especially programs with a Christian focus. Linking ethical concepts with tenets from Scripture can increase students' confidence in their ability to respond through a biblical worldview to ethical dilemmas in nursing practice. Specific assignments can be geared to help students think critically about the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements (Code) and biblical responses to ethical situations. Sample assignments are presented for the nine provisions of the Code.
