American Nurses Association Seeking Input for Code of Ethics

The American Nurses Association (ANA)’s Center for Ethics and Human Rights has begun a review of the Code of Ethics for Nurses to determine the need for revision.  As part of this process, the ANA is seeking public comment via a survey through March 15, 2013.

Complete the survey exploring whether the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretative Statements (the Code) should be revised. The Code was last revised in 2001. Results from the survey will advise ANA on whether or not to proceed with a revision of the Code. It will also inform ANA should the decision be made to move forward with revising the Code.
 
Access the survey and submit your comments today. The deadline for submitting comments is March 15, 2013. The survey takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and it must be completed in one sitting.
 
Ethics is integral to nursing practice, and the Code, one of ANA's foundational documents, is essential for nursing practice. For more information or to review the current Code, go to http://nursingworld.org/CodeofEthics.
