Ethics in Research Paper

Nurses face multiple ethical issues within the practice setting as well as when conducting research. Nurses must be aware of the three value systems of society, nursing, and science, which come into play when reviewing research. Having an understanding of the major ethical principles when reviewing research studies is important to assure the rights of human subjects, the ethics of caring, and values of scientific inquiry are upheld.
