LAW, ETHICS AND ACCOUNTABILITY FOR NURSES
Credit points: 15
In this subject students will be assisted to examine the legal, ethical and accountability issues which impact on the practice of nursing. Individual responsibility of the nurse is emphasised through investigation of professional ethical and legal accountability, and forms of regulation. Current models for ethical decision-making are explored and applied in the analysis of selected ethical problems in nursing practice. The students are encouraged to examine and clarify personal and professional values and beliefs and develop a reflective approach to their practice.
