Two provisions in the Code of Ethics for Nurses relate to collective action. Provision 6 states “The nurse participates in establishing, maintaining, and improving healthcare environments and conditions of employment conducive to the provision of quality health care and consistent with the values of the profession through individual and collective action.”Provision 9 states “The profession of nursing, as represented by associations and their members, is responsible for articulating nursing values, for maintaining the integrity of the profession and its practice, and for shaping social policy.”Select one of these provisions and describe what it means to you. Based on the exploration of nursing unions and associations done in class today, provide an example of collective action, or shaping social policy, engaged in by these groups. What is the issue they are advocating for or against? How are they doing it? Why do you think it is important? How does it relate to the provision you have selected?Two pages double space, one-page single space minimum. Health Science Science Nursing PHIL 230 Share QuestionEmailCopy link Comments (0)
