The Attitudes of Nurses and Third and Fourth Year Nursing Students Who Deal With Ethical Issues
Nursing Ethics. 1996 Mar; 3(1): 27-37.
Ethical attitudes towards pregnant women were examined by using a questionnaire among 50 nurses, 50 midwives and 100 nursing students (third and fourth years). The main findings show that nurses and students differ in: (1) their knowledge of the Code of Ethics; (2) their protection of patients' rights with regard to secrecy and privacy; and (3) their reporting of mistakes. These findings highlight the need for more serious study of ethics among senior professional nurses.
