The aim of this study to discuss the do not resuscitate order focusing on controversial opinions and to summarize the opponents and proponents opinions from the legal and ethical perspective. There is a different opinion regarding to do not resuscitation. Nursing play an essential role in the discussion of do not resuscitation, and that does not mean patients will die alone and uncared, it means that the patient will be placed under hospice care when the end is near. Do not resuscitation is the way in which patient and family could reduce the long and painful time before he/she dies.
