ANA Asks Public Comment For Revising Nurses Code of Ethics


The American Nurses Association (ANA) is seeking feedback on the draft Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretive Statements.

ANA’s draft of the new Code of Ethics is available for public viewing and encourages nurses to “read and reflect” on the entire document.

For the preface and the nine provisions of the code, nurses are asked to provide feedback through their website. A narrative is included on each provision to summarize the list of changes.


The deadline for submitting comments is until June 6.

Matt Vera is a registered nurse with a bachelor of science in nursing since 2009 and is currently working as a full-time writer and editor for Nurseslabs. During his time as a student, he knows how frustrating it is to cram on difficult nursing topics. Finding help online is nearly impossible. His situation drove his passion for helping student nurses by creating content and lectures that are easy to digest. Knowing how valuable nurses are in delivering quality healthcare but limited in number, he wants to educate and inspire nursing students. As a nurse educator since 2010, his goal in Nurseslabs is to simplify the learning process, break down complicated topics, help motivate learners, and look for unique ways of assisting students in mastering core nursing concepts effectively.
