Challenges to Godly Excellence with The ICN Code of Ethics

The ICN Code of Ethics for Nurses includes 4 principal elements that outline standards of ethical conduct. In the presentation, I supported each element with biblical scripture and Christian nursing resources. Watch the presentation and then feel free to respond to the following questions.

Element #1 Nurses and Patients, other people requiring service. Luke 10:33-37 or The Good Samaritan

Element #2 Nurses and Practice. Colossians 3:12-17

Element #3 Nurses and the Profession. 1 Peter 4:7-11

Element #4 Nurses and global health. Originally I chose Proverbs 3:27-28. I would change it to Matthew 25:35-40.

I would love to hear which one of the elements is the most difficult to live out as a Christian nurse.

Is it providing compassionate, empathetic nursing care to difficult patients?

Do you lack the moral courage to speak up with conscientious objection?

Have you been unkind and/or unprofessional to your colleagues at work?

Are you blind to the health inequities within your area of nursing or health care?
