The Essential Imperative of Basic Nursing Education: An Ethical Discourse
Peirce, Anne Griswold
ANS. Advances in nursing science 2010 Oct-Dec; 33(4): 320-8
The presence of multiple educational pathways into professional nursing is not without ethical consequences. If the essential duty of nursing is to the patient then education must focus on teaching the highest provision of patient care. The humanities component of the baccalaureate provides both insight into the human condition and exposure to alternate problem-solving methodologies, both of which augment the nursing process and improve patient care. An argument is made that by not requiring more rather than less education, we ultimately fail the patient and thus, our ethical duty.
