Ethics and nursing have been together and been in the process of delivering quality patient care and servicing for as long as each discipline has existed. For this paper, our main focus shall be upon the purpose and objective of understanding ethics in the light of nursing and how each tends to make necessary adjustments and making justified recommendations for analyzing the various patterns of ethical nursing to have existed over a period of time. Nursing and Ethics go hand-in-hand, when it comes to providing quality care to the patients at a hospital or at a community service centre. Delivering quality care to patients is one of the most important disciplines of ethics, which must be practiced with great zeal and attention. The requirement and usage of assessment instruments has become an integral part of clinical setting in today's era of enhanced accountability and high stakes decision making.

It is important for the counselor to understand the ethical issues that are related to tests, which are also mentioned in APA (American Psychological Association) and AACD (American Association for Counseling and Development). The counselor should understand these issues in order to provide the relevant information to the client that is supposed to be provided by the practice of psychological tests.
