The Most Trusted Profession.
Nurses are the most honest and ethical professionals in America, according to Gallup polls
for more than 12 years in a row. In 2014, 80 percent of Americans said that
nurses have “very high” or “high” standards of honesty and
ethics, compared with 7% and 8% ratings, respectively, for members of Congress
and salespeople. According to Pamela Cipiriano, President of the 35th American
Nurses Association (ANA) (2015, March 01), “The public places its faith in
nurses to practice ethically.”
A patient’s
health, autonomy, and even life or death can be affected by a nurse’s decisions
and actions. The IOM’s recommendation to increase the role of nursing in both present
and future health care practice underscores the nexus between the decisions and
actions of nurses and the health and outcomes of the patients cared for by
nurses.
The
critical role of nurses in present and future health care makes it imperative
that nurses be knowledgeable about the ANA’s Code of Ethics with Interpretive
Statements (2015) (the “Code”). As the cornerstone document of the nursing
profession, the Code reflects the evolution of health care and considers the
most current ethical challenges nurses face in practice. The Code upholds the
best interests of patients, families, and communities.
