Reviews of the Ethics Course

The completion of this learning module has given me more knowledge and insight around law and ethics regarding my enrolled nurse scope of practice. 

– Georgia

I learned to importance of practicing and understanding ethics as it relates to nursing. Ethics as it relates to law. The obligation of patient advocation. The tools and process to use when faced with an ethical situation. My practice will change in the way I treat a patient understanding their autonomy rights. All my actions are questioned with a simple saying to my self “Do no harm, do good, respect autonomy and be just.”  

– Leanne

A very thoughtful and informative session. Nursing ethics certainly not a subject widely discuss in my early days of nursing in the 1970’s. Now an extremely important part of our daily work and life.  

– Linda

I never realised just how complex the idea of ethics is. I always thought of it as black and white, now I will be more aware that it is not a matter of what I think is right but also what those around me, the organisation I work for, and the client all believe to be right that make up what is ethical.  The explanations in clear, basic language made it easy to understand and to relate it to real life.

Frequently asked questions:

Q. Why do I need to learn about ethics? I am a good person and I always try to do the right thing.

A: When health professionals are faced with questions about ‘is this fair’, or ‘can I do this’, the moral, ethical and legal aspects of their work are being addressed. Recognising and adhering to one’s conscience may not be sufficient to meet the standards expected of a professional as there are often many competing interests and expectations that they must meet.

Q. What will I gain if I undertake learning about ethics?

A: Understanding the foundations of governing rules and policies can assist health professionals in judging situations and give them confidence that they are making decisions and behaving within acceptable limits.

Q. What are the professional codes that rely on a nurse understanding ethics?

A: Codes of ethical practice promoting behaviours that society deems ‘best’ are taken up by a professional group to provide clear and usually very high standards. Because professional groups want to ensure that the behaviour of their members is above reproach and reflect the best of human potential in all professional endeavours, ethical expectations may be imposed through the regulatory authority.
