Deontological aspects of the nursing profession: understanding the code of ethics. Rev Bras Enferm. 2018 Jan-Feb;71(1):3-10 Authors: Silva TND, Freire MEM, Vasconcelos MF, Silva Junior SVD, Silva WJC, Araújo PDS, Eloy AVA Abstract OBJECTIVE: to investigate nursing professionals' understanding concerning the Code of Ethics; to assess the relevance of the Code of Ethics of the nursing profession and its use in practice; to identify how problem-solving is performed when facing ethical dilemmas in professional practice. METHOD: exploratory descriptive study, conducted with 34 (thirty-four) nursing professionals from a teaching hospital in João Pessoa, PB - Brazil. RESULTS: four thematic categories emerged: conception of professional ethics in nursing practice; interpretations of ethics in the practice of care; use of the Code of Ethics in the professional practice; strategies for solving ethical issues in the professional practice. FINAL CONSIDERATIONS: some of the nursing professionals comprehend the meaning coherently; others have a limited comprehension, based on jargon. Therefore, a deeper understanding of the text contained in this code is necessary so that it can be applied into practice, aiming to provide a quality care that is, above all, ethical and legal.
