NRSG 626 - Moral/Ethical Decision Making


3 hours
This course provides the opportunity to study the nurses’ role in moral and ethical decision-making. This course will challenge the learner to examine moral and ethical value systems when encountering patients with acute and chronic disease processes.  This course will allow the nurse to analyze the impact of moral, spiritual, ethical, social, and political values, as they relate to professional practice. Discussions center on recognizing physiological, moral, ethical, and spiritual variance among cultural norms and health care practices in varied racial and ethnic backgrounds. Students will reflect on their personal values as they relate to moral and ethical decision-making, the role of change agents for others and nursing implications to professional, spiritual and personal growth.
