Professional Ethics: What Would You Do?

Today’s health care environment gives nurses many reasons to be conflicted. Genetic testing, abortion, and end of life care are just some of the areas in which nurses may face ethical dilemmas. Consider how you feel about the following issues:

Respecting the wishes of a suffering client that he is permitted to die with dignity,

Respecting the health surrogate’s wishes regarding termination of life support,

Or even observing another nurse take two tablets of oxycodone as ordered but keeping one for herself.

Then give an example of an ethical dilemma you may have confronted in your own clinical experience or workplace. How did you come to the decision you made? What feelings did you experience while coming to that choice? (If you have not yet faced an ethical dilemma, research one and comment on it, answering the same questions.)

Module 2 Discussion

Case Study: What Sort of Leader Is Needed?

Case Study

Two new associate-degree graduates were hired for the pediatric unit. Both worked three 12-hour shifts a week; Jan worked the day-to-evening shift and Rosemary worked the night shift. Whenever their shifts connected, they would compare notes on their experience. Jan felt she was learning rapidly, gaining clinical skills and beginning to feel at ease with her colleagues.

Rosemary, however, still felt unsure of herself and often isolated. There have been times that she was the only registered nurse on the unit all night. The aides and LPNs were very experienced, but Rosemary feels she is not ready for that kind of responsibility. Rosemary knows she must speak to the nurse manager about this, but she’s called several times, and she’s never available. The shift assignments are left in the staff lounge by an assistant.

Questions

Your discussion post should answer the following questions in a well-constructed commentary. Use references, in APA format, where appropriate.

To what extent is this problem due to a failure to lead? Who has failed to act?

What style of leadership was displayed by Rosemary? The nurse manager?

How effective was their leadership? What are your suggestions for Rosemary?

Module 5 Discussion

Intuition vs. Experience in Nursing

Your discussion post is to answer this question: What do you think nursing contributes to health care? How can a robotic system incorporate the clinical judgment that nurses use? Be as creative as you wish!

If you can, listen to the following audio clip from National Nurses United’s “Insist on a Registered Nurse” campaign:

While this is an attempt at humor about a serious situation, it drives a fundamental question: What would health care be without nurses?

Module 6 Discussion

Political Issues for Nursing

Go to the ANA home pageand search for their Advocacy Policy. Read through the ANA Advocacy Policy’s web pages.

Look at issues at a federal, state, or local level for which the ANA is advocating change or new policies.

Which one are you most eager to see enacted? Why does it interest you? How will passage of such legislation affect you or your patients?

Module 7 Discussion

Teamwork

Think back to your most recent time in the clinical setting when another discipline (respiratory, physical therapy, nutrition, occupational therapy) was utilized.

Describe a form of interdisciplinary collaborative care you’ve seen on your current assigned clinical or work site. Then have a discussion about the following questions:

Who coordinated that care? What was the nurse’s role in ascertaining that the care was provided?

Was the patient’s outcome met? How or why not? What would you, a novice nurse-leader, have done differently to achieve the patient’s goals?

Module 9 Discussion

What Motivates You to Become or Stay Healthy?

The concept of health and wellness differs greatly between people. Health can be the absence of disease, while wellness can imply a positive state of health in holism, encompassing the mental, emotional, spiritual, and even social aspects. Think about your own state of health. Do you consider yourself a healthy person? If so, what motivates you to be healthy? If not, what would motivate you to become so?

Module 10 Discussion

How Can You, One Nurse, Educate Clients in Your Facility/Neighborhood/Community?

The ANA has stated, “Education for those in the health-care professions must increase in depth and breadth as scientific knowledge expands” (Catalano, 2012, p.91) According to Catalano, there has been a lack of adequate preparation for educating clients with self-management concerns, particularly clients with chronic illnesses, and this lack of education is a serious violation of ethical responsibilities by health care providers.

Do you agree or disagree with these statement and why? Is the failure to properly educate clients the fault of the Nurse? Does the Nurse’s level of education matter? Why do you feel that way?

*Use appropriate databases (CINAHL is one of the best for nursing research); search e-books; use reputable online sources ONLY

*Search current references using your key words/terms—you need to have at least 5 references, no more than 5 years old, and at least 3 of them need to be peer-reviewed journal articles

*References should appear in APA format
