Nursing Ethics


Nursing Ethics and Interviews


Damon Cottrell, RN, discusses the ethical challenges a critical care nurse faces on a typical day, especially when it comes to the treatment of pain. (February 1, 2012)

Nurses face any number of ethical issues at the bedside. Is there a difference between nursing and medical ethics? And how should nurses best address those differences?  Nelda Godfrey, RN, associate dean for undergraduate programs at the University of Kansas School of Nursing, and Noreen Thompson, RN, clinical nurse specialist at the University of Kansas Hospital, discuss these and related questions. (July 26, 2011) 

Pamela Bennett, executive director, Healthcare Alliance Development at Purdue Pharma and past president of the American Society of Pain Management Nursing, and Ann Schreier, president of ASPMN, discuss the research, advocacy and education work of the American Society of Pain Management Nursing to promote best nursing practices for people experiencing pain. 

Caring for our frail parents, spouses and friends is fraught with choices and decisions. Helen Emmott, RN, former Center staff member, wrote a book about it. Receive a free copy of Without Regrets and spend an evening with Helen as she shares how personal caregiving shaped and enlightened their professional perspectives on aging and end-of-life issues at our 2014 Joan Berkley Bioethics Symposium.
