Abstract

Substance use occurs among women of all demographic groups. Current legal issues provide the foundation for an ethical analysis of the goals, values, and professional obligations of nurses caring for substance-using women. Adequate knowledge, well developed interpersonal skills, and insight into personal attitudes are essential for ethical and effective professional care.
