Use the following Ethics Inventory to evaluate your approach to ethical issues as a Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) (from p. 118 of the Policy and Politics in Nursing and Health Care text):
Do we maximize good and reduce harm for our patients?
Also, do we act with virtue in difficult situations by speaking up when it may not be popular to do so?
Do we act justly and advocate for justice in our work environments?
Are we responsive to the vulnerabilities of others?
Identify an ethical dilemma you would face as a Nurse Practitioner (NP) (refer to p. 314 in your text, Advanced Practice Nursing: An Integrative Approach, for examples).
Write a 900- to 1,050-word paper addressing the following:
Identify which provision of the nursing code of ethics would be violated based on the ethical dilemma you selected.
How can you use the code of ethics to address the issue?
Explain how you would raise awareness to other nurses in your workplace about the ethical dilemma selected.
Explain how you can use Watson’s theory of human caring as a guide when encountering ethical decisions.
Your paper should include an introduction, a body, and a conclusion. Also, support your answers with the course’s readings and at least two scholarly journal articles. The article’s purpose is to support your positions, claims, and observations, in addition to your textbook.
ProQuest and EBSCOhost are great sites to find resources. Also, write in a concise and logical, using excellent grammar and style techniques. Additionally, the quality of your writing dictates grading criteria. On the other hand, if you use direct quotes from books or articles, place the words you copied (use parenthesis) and cite in-line.
The quotes should be complete sentences (no more, less) and should be incorporated in your essay to illustrate your ideas. Please, cite your sources in a clickable reference list at the end. Also, do not copy without providing proper attribution (quotation marks and in-line citations). Also, write an essay format, not in bullet form, numbering, or another list format. It would be best if you use your own words. Lastly, proofread your work and run it through Grammarly for thorough confirmation.
