Clinical Nurse Specialists have the obligation to maintain professional therapeutic boundaries with patients and fellow health care professionals.  While providing care and support, relationships can develop that may lead to a blurring of these boundaries.

Professional boundaries are a tenet in the nursing code of ethics, but these boundaries are frequently crossed without nurses recognizing the impact.  It is necessary to educate Clinical Nurse Specialists about professional therapeutic boundaries to enable them to not only provide compassionate, patient-centered care but also to assist other staff in providing this care without crossing these boundaries.
