Moral Courage: Building Resilience

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

The American Nurses Association has named 2015 “The Year of Ethics,” with the update of their Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements. What does that mean for you? What are the skills and traits needed to demonstrate moral courage when you are confronted by ethical dilemmas in practice? Do you feel courageous enough to advocate for your patients or intimidated and powerless to address the situation? In a dynamic and practical conversation, you’ll use real-life cases to gain the knowledge needed to face difficult ethical situations.

Sponsored by the ONS Board of Directors
