Nursing Ethics is an international journal that takes a practical approach to this complex subject and relates each topic to the working environment. The articles on ethical and legal issues are written in a comprehensible style and official documents are analysed in a user-friendly way. The international Editorial Board ensures the selection of a wide range of high quality articles of global significance.

Nursing Ethics adheres to a rigorous double-blind reviewing policy in which the identity of reviewers and authors are concealed from both parties. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible.

This extensive journal covers highly relevant issues including:

  • Current ethical issues in nursing care
  • Current health policies
  • Modes of thought in health care
  • Comparative and cross-cultural studies
  • Ethics in the nursing curriculum
  • Codes of conduct
  • Resuscitation
