Webster students learn collaboratively in a Nursing Leadership and Management course. The ethical concerns of today’s nurses require consideration of both abstract ethical concepts and the immediate needs of patients and families.

National Nurses Week is May 6-12, 2015, and the College of Arts & Sciences at Webster University is proud to honor its nurses — faculty and students — for the critical role they play in supporting the health of our communities.

In recognition of the impact ethical nursing practice has on patient outcomes and the quality of care, the American Nurses Association (ANA) has designated 2015 as the “Year of Ethics.” Keeping with this focus, the theme for National Nurses Week is “Ethical Practice, Quality Care” — a theme central to Webster University’s nursing programs since their inception.

“Ethical principles are integrated throughout our nursing curricula, knowing that nurses face moral issues everyday,” said Jennifer Broeder, associate dean of Professional Programs and chair of the Department of Nursing. “Our faculty discuss with our students the ethical obligations of nurses as providers and designers of care.”

The ethical concerns of today’s nurses are varied and complex, and require nurses to consider both abstract ethical concepts and the immediate needs of patients and families.
