    • Inclusion of ethics- and standards-based professional practice reflects today’s professional climate which demands increasing accountability.
    • Incorporation of cultural, spiritual, and lifespan content along with the nurse’s role in hospitals, communities, and long-term care settings presents a broad approach to critical thinking.
