ABSTRACT

Ethical nursing practice can be referred to as doing what is best for those who are the recipient of one's services, according to the recipient. However, clear-cut lines of what is and is not in the best interest of the patient can become blurred. Nurses often encounter situations that require them to use ethical judgment. This article discusses how ethical decision making can be developed in students, new graduates, and nurses in practice.
