A nurse will be held to these guiding pillars and lack of knowledge or understanding will not be an excuse if something happens to a patient. This course will first describe ethical concepts that influence nursing practice, then examine professional standards, most of which are based on specific ethical concepts. Finally, laws and regulations will be discussed. By the end of the course the nurse will have a better understanding of the three pillars that guide nursing practice.
