about this item

Designed specifically for the educational needs of RN to BSN students

This is a unique, innovative professional nursing ethics textbook designed specifically for the educational needs of RN to BSN students. Written by experts in the field, it discusses ethical concepts geared to the licensed nurse who has spent several years in practice but is learning high-level concepts and applications. The text addresses different areas of professional practice and is rich with case studies illustrating clinical scenarios involving ethical awareness and decision-making. The book fulfills the necessary criteria for the AACN Essentials for Baccalaureate Education and the QSEN and ISOM competencies.

Clear and concise, the text relates content to the nurse’s current practice and professional development without extraneous information typically included in other texts. Progressing from simple to complex, chapters build on previous practice experience to focus on ethical decision-making in a variety of practice environments. The book incorporates a “four boxes” decision-making model and addresses essential communication skills, how to recognize and resolve moral distress, and the role of an ethics committee. It discusses common ethical issues likely to be encountered and ethical practice as it relates to quality and safety. Case Study Dilemmas that include evidence-based research provide the opportunity to apply ethical decision-making principles. QSEN application principles are also featured in each chapter, and interactive exercises and questions and PowerPoints provide further opportunity for critical thinking.
