The ETHICS of Nursing 

Gloria Ramsey, JD, RN, FAANGloria Ramsey, JD, RN, FAAN

Unique ethical and legal concerns arise where treatment questions become most difficult: end-of-life and palliative care; decisional capacity in the elderly; diversity and health disparities; legal and ethical issues of HIV. Gloria Ramsey’s bioethics research and advocacy offer a voice to the unheard.

“Engagement is everything. Separately, we as caregivers and researchers—and patients and families—can solve parts of a problem. That’s not good enough for me, so that’s where I get to work.”

 

Susan Matthews Epstein, JD

Susan Matthews Epstein, JDSusan Matthews Epstein, ’66, has long stood up for the voiceless and powerless, with 10 years in hospital and community nursing and then an impactful career as a legal aid attorney. She has witnessed the power of each profession to make a difference. And she is committed to building nurses to continue the fight for what is right, establishing and funding the Endowed Professorship in Health Equity and Social Justice to do just that. The professorship will solidify the school’s influence and leadership in advocating for universal health access, equity in care locally and globally, and understanding how gender, race, and other social determinants impact health and well-being.

“I’m thrilled and proud to have this opportunity to bring the school forward in an area that is so critical to nursing and today’s health care environment.”
