The ANA Code of Ethics with interpretive statements are analyzed in relation to individual practice settings and the nursing profession. Legal implications related to providing nursing care, particularly examples of malpractice, how a bill becomes law, and the legislative process are discussed. Students develop a position paper in memo format on a health policy issue including integration of relevant ethical, legal, legislative and economic implications.
