Integrity is firm adherence to a code of ethical and moral values and behaviors, a soundness of decision-making, honesty and accountability for actions based on an internally consistent framework of principles.
Nursing practice is based on ethical principles and standards of nursing education and practice. Personal integrity is acquired over a lifetime. Professional integrity is modeled and mentored during the educational process and provides a foundation for practice that can be sustained for the duration of a nurse’s career. Faculty embraces principles governing integrity and affirms the importance of diligence, civility, and honesty in the academic environment. The professoriate aims to foster an environment of trust, clarity of expectations, and fair assessment that promote academic honesty.
