This has made me more aware of the complexity of many situations and has given me better understanding and insight to things I previously only saw on a superficial level.

As a Registered Nurse I will now be able to market myself to law offices, risk management departments, and private clients who may be victims of malpractice or negligence.

I enjoyed this class and it was very informative!

I have a much broader perspective and will consider many other issues in the realm of legal and ethical practice of nursing.

I will be more cautious in patient interactions and with confidentiality.

I will do differently in my documentation. I learned the permitted & not permitted disclosure of information.

I have a new awareness of the legal and ethical laws in my profession. I will make sure that I speak clearly and give extremely accurate directions.

Very interesting class! Thank you!

I do not work in direct patient care but I do educate the staff and make them aware of quality/risk management issues. I have recently used the information presented in educating staff of their liability with dealing with following hospital policy. "Just because that is the way we always did it doesn't mean that it is the right way now."

I enjoyed the class and it was manageable with work, family and another graduate school class. I think that having the ability to print the class information was a benefit as I now have a resource to use for work.
