Code of Ethics for Filipino Nurses The professional code of ethics for Filipino nurses strongly emphasizes the fourfold responsibility of the nurse, the universality of nursing practice, the scope of their responsibilities to the people they serve, to their co-workers, to society and environment, and to their profession. The Code of Ethics used by Filipino nurses prior to 1984, was the code promulgated by the International Council for Nurses. In 1982, the PNA Special Committee developed a Code of Ethics for Filipino Nurses, but was not implemented. In 1984, the Board of Nursing adopted the Code of Ethics of the ICN, adding “promotion of spiritual environment” as the fifth-fold responsibility of the nurse. In 1989, the Code of Ethics promulgated by the PNA was approved by the Professional Regulation Commission and was recommended for use. This was approved In October 25, 1990 by the general assembly of the PNA . In July 14, 2004, a new Code of Ethics for Filipino Nurse was adopted under R.A. 9173 and was promulgated by the BON. The Code of Ethics for Filipino Nurses embodies ethical principles and guidelines to be observed, stipulated under seven (7) articles. The ethical principles are stated below. Article I – Preamble 1. Health is a fundamental right. The Filipino RN, believing in the worth and dignity of each human being, recognizes the primary responsibility to preserve health at all cost. This responsibility encompasses promotion of health, prevention of illness, alleviation of suffering, and restoration of health. However, when the foregoing are not possible, assistance towards a peaceful death shall be his/her obligation.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
