Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Barbara A. Carper, RN, EdD, FAAN (University of North Carolina-Charlotte)
Description: This second edition study guide presents selected core topics in ethical and legal aspects of nursing in an outline format. They include major ethical theories and principles, ethical codes for nurses, and current ethical issues in nursing. A description of the legal system provides a context for the basic legal topics of nurse practice acts, liability, professional licensure, and legally sensitive practice settings.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a review of essential content in a format that enhances understanding by highlighting key points, summarizing major themes, defining frequently used terms, and providing learning objectives and study questions.
Audience: This study guide is targeted especially for nursing students.
Features: The organization of the book provides a consistent and useful format for review of basic ethical and legal aspects of nursing. The glossary provides a convenient reference for frequently used or misunderstood terms. The appendixes include answers to the study questions for each chapter and provide examples of commonly encountered legal documents such as Advance Directives, Power of Attorney for Health Care, and a uniform organ donor card. There is a limited list of selected references.
Assessment: This study guide is a well organized and easy to use review of basic ethical and legal content for nursing students. It is intended for use only as a supplementary review for content provided in the more comprehensive and authoritative ethics and legal books, and is not recommended as a primary information source.
