"The Compendium of Standards created by the College of Nurses of Ontario (1999) values fairness, truthfulness, respect and client choice as integral components of our ethical framework when providing care to clients. Academic integrity is mirrored synonyms of these principles. If a nurse is willing to lie or cheat to succeed, might we then question the care they provide to others?" Professor Jamie Crawley, Faculty of Nursing
