Many Nurses have had a fragmented education in relation to the law that frames Nursing practice and Nursing ethics. While they recognise they must adhere to the legal and ethical standards and the underpinning philosophies and structures, the application of the Australian legal system and rules of ethics are not well understood.
The purpose of this eleven Module Law and Ethics Program for Nurses is to provide the Nurse, registered with AHPRA, the opportunity to obtain the necessary knowledge regarding health law and ethics to confidently work within the current Health Care Industry.
The content of each module stands alone as a continuing professional development (CPD) activity and the completion of each module will be awarded a CPD Certificate as evidence of the education activity. This program has been created so the modules do not have to be completed in order.
