All nurses have ethical duties and obligations that are central to professional nursing practice. The American Nurses Association highlighted the importance of this with the release of the latest revision to the Code of Ethics for Nurses.
This revision emphasizes the significance of contemporary issues such as global health, human rights, social media, and the culture of safety in healthcare. A review of the recent revisions offers an opportunity to consider the impact that ethical nursing practice has on patient safety and the quality of health care. The revised Code of Ethics offers a rich catalyst for discussion of the many ethical dimensions of nursing practice and the challenges pediatric hematology/oncology nurses face in fulfilling their duties to patients, families, society, and the nursing profession.
