Review:

"This timely second edition from the International Council of Nurses leaves readers with much to contemplate in these troubled times, as complex ethical dilemmas in nursing care continue to arise."
Candian Nurse

"Truly an international book...easy to use and readily applicable throughout...Ethics is a very dry and often dreaded subject in the nursing curricular, but this book makes it accessible and is surprisingly readable."

Accident and Emergency Nursing

'...an essential text for all nursing students whether pre- or post-registration.'

Journal of Advanced Nursing

'This is a scholarly work that is readable without being patronizing and, more importantly, moves the study of ethics from abstract theorizing to the concrete empirical world of nursing.'
