Every day, nurses are faced with complex ethical dilemmas that influence their day-to-day practice and patient care outcomes. Nurses who lack the understanding of the ethical principles and guidelines of nursing may experience moral distress when they have to confront ethical dilemmas.

The American Nurses Association developed the Code of Ethics for Nurses to serve as a guide for carrying out nursing responsibilities in a manner consistent with quality nursing care and the ethical obligations of the profession. A nurse’s knowledge and understanding of the Code of Ethics for Nurses can arm a nurse with the power to be a major influencer in day-to-day decisions that are made regarding patient care outcomes.
