B
Nurses advocate for patients when they support the patient's cause. A nurse's ability to adequate advocate for a patient is based on the unique relationship that develops and the opportunity to better understand the patient's point of view. Responsibility refers to respecting one's professional obligations and following through on promises. Confidentiality deals with privacy issues, and accountability refers to owning one's actions.
