Health Care Ethics Minor
Health Care Ethics issues increasingly make the news in Nevada and throughout the nation. The fields of health care, science, health administration, public health, education, business, law, and government are increasingly aware of and interested in health care ethics. Students engaged in this field of study graduate with expertise in the core competencies identified by the American Society for Bioethcs and Humanities: (1) ethical assessment skills, (2) process skills, and (3) interpersonal skills.
No matter what your area of interest: nursing, philosophy, social work, human development, law, medicine, health policy, education, the humanities, even engineering, Health Care Ethics can provide a vital perspective. As newspaper headlines show, personal and professional awareness of ethics and ethical issues has become a compelling need in modern society. Ethics touches every aspect of an individual's life and daily decision-making. Leaders throughout business, health, and government are calling for increased training in ethics for both their executives and employees. The 18-credit Health Care Ethics minor includes core courses, field experience, and electives to provide an in-depth, academic and applied understanding of ethics.
