Understanding Ethics for Nursing Students
Ethics have an significant impact on the decisions nurses make in their day-to-day work, so it’s important for all student nurses to develop their understanding of ethical frameworks as preparation for future practice. In this book, the author explains ethical ideas, theories and concepts in simple to understand terms, focussing on real-life nursing situations in order to make applying these principles to practice easy. This book will make student nurses consider their own values, and how ethics fit into who they are and how they behave, helping them to unlock this interesting and complex subject.
· Fully mapped to the new NMC standards of proficiency for registered nurses (2018)
· A practical guide that explores how ethics applies to nursing and where theory fits in

This book provides the essential ethical, reflective approach that is needed in nursing, offering a framework which helps guide and develop an individual’s own thoughts, and encouraging decision-making that is based on a sound ethical understanding.

great book for all years pre reg and years 1& 2 of the Msc pre reg nursing modules
A very useful book for students and teachers. Happy to use it.
The academic level of the text is too high for the students and does not fully suit the curriculum's content.
