ANA Designates 2015 as the “Year of Ethics”

Nurses trusted 2013The American Nurses Association (ANA) recently deemed 2015 as the “Year of Ethics.” Recognizing the importance of ethics in all aspects of nursing practice, ANA has also released a revised code of ethics for the profession, the first since 2001. According to ANA President, Pamela F. Cipriano, PhD, RN, NEA-BC, FAAN,

“The public places its faith in nurses to practice ethically. A patient’s health, autonomy and even life or death, can be affected by a nurse’s decisions and actions. ANA believes it’s important that all nurses practice at the highest ethical level, and therefore, we will be offering a full range of activities to inform and support nurses to achieve that goal in a stressful and ever-changing health care environment.”

Released on January 1, 2015, the revised Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements “reflects modern clinical practice and evolving conditions, and fully addresses transformations in health care.” In order to emphasize the importance of ethics in nursing practice, ANA also participated in the National Nursing Ethics Summit last year to form the Blueprint for 21st Century Nursing Ethics: Report of the National Nursing Summit. Moreover, the “Year of Ethics” will also feature prominently in National Nurses Week, with the theme of “Ethical Practice. Quality Care.”

Jones & Bartlett Learning is committed providing the highest quality resources in nursing ethics this and every year. Our newly revised Nursing Ethics: Across the Curriculum and Into Practice, Fourth Edition Includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access by Janie B. Butts and Karen L. Rich integrates the concept of nursing ethics across the curriculum by preparing students and professionals for the moral issues commonly encountered in practice. What’s more, each new print copy includes Navigate 2 Advantage Access that unlocks a comprehensive and interactive eBook, student practice activities and assessments, a full suite of instructor resources, and learning analytics reporting tools.
