Nursing Code Examples As a neonatal nurse and a member of the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, I not only follow the code ethics produced by the American Nurses Association, but the code of ethics by NANN as well. One example from the NANN website includes: “Neonatal nurses will respect family autonomy and strive to insure families have accurate, complete and understandable information in order to make informed decisions” (NANN, 2014). This is very important in the way that I practice because it is essential for the families of our tiny patients to understand what is going on with their child’s plan of care and current status.

The contrasting roles of nursing: Registered Nurse vs. Licensed Practical Nurse The registered nurse (RN) and the licensed practical nurse (LPN) are both intelligent, caring individuals who have dedicated their lives to caring for, and easing the suffering of patients in many different settings.
