Legal & Ethical Issues in Nursing

Fifth Edition

Ginny Wacker Guido, JD, MSN, RN, FAAN

Washington State University Vancouver

 

The fifth edition of Legal and Ethical Issues in Nursing continues the tradition of the fourth edition as the essential title that combines legal and ethical knowledge for students and practicing nurses and how they influence the professional practice of nursing.  This influence reflects the expanding autonomous roles of nurses, in the public and community health arena, in acute-care settings, or in long-term and hospice settings.  It also reflects changes in the health care delivery structure, including mandatory nurse-patient ratios, the downsizing or closing of hospitals and other health care delivery agencies, and the continued shortage of professional nurses.

 

New to this edition:

  • Expanded ethical coverage, including a new chapter that applies ethical theories to situations that nurses encounter.
  • A new ethical issues feature highlighting some of the more frequently encountered ethical issues within an area of the law or clinical practice site.
  • Updated information on current laws and their application to nursing.
  • New chapter summary format allows easy review of chapter content.
  • Much of the content is new or updated to reflect the changes in the law and in the practice of professional nursing.
