Teaching Nursing Law in Nursing Schools
Much has been said and written about medical law, and much less about nursing law. Owing to the substantial advances in the nursing profession during the last decade, such as the increasingly academic basis of the training, following the First and Second International Congresses on Law and Ethics held in Israel, the necessity of developing a nursing law program has become more intense. One serious impediment to such a development has been the lack of knowledge and awareness of the subject even in its present limited form. The first, and essential, source of knowledge in this subject should be the nursing school because from the practical point of view this is the only place in which student nurses can be taught the principles of nursing law systematically.
