NURS 521 Ethics in Health Care

Nursing and Health Care Ethics explores the work of nurse scholars in ethics, and goes well beyond a mere documentation of what has transpired and a list of what can be done in the future. It creatively looks back to assess previous accomplishments and forward to find new directions and strengthen future scholarly contributions in nursing ethics. The content of each class is focused on weekly critical thinking discussion groups based on the reading assignment which gives the student an opportunity to examine and evaluate information regarding the unique contributions of nurses to ethics and health care. Critical thinking activities, organized by the book's themes are examples of applying these scholarly insights into practice.
