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.

Professional Ethics Introduction Professional ethics is one major component of the nursing profession that involves legal and ethical concerns in the health care setting to define responsibilities and conduct in the professional setting. It is important that the nurse responds to these unique challenges in a professional manner while continuing to advocate for the patients to the best ability. According to Guido (2010), “Ethics is the branch of philosophy concerned with evaluating human action” (p. 3). This involves the internal process of determining between what is right or wrong (based on reasoning), and then showing the appropriate response to the situation based on principles. When distinguishing the difference between ethics and morals, we must consider morals to be “personal principles that are acquired from life experiences, family and peer relationships, religion, culture, and the law” (Guido, 2010, p. 3).
