Ethics presentation (3 ppt slides) | introduction to nursing
Next, the nurse should create a plan with specific goals that align with best practices while also considering each individual’s unique needs and values. The implementation of this plan should focus on providing care in accordance with professional standards such as those set forth by The Joint Commission or American Nurses Association in order to ensure quality outcomes for patients. Finally, nurses must evaluate whether or not their interventions produced desired outcomes and determine if any adjustments need to be made going forward.
Throughout this process, nurses must also remain cognizant of their own ethical obligations as healthcare providers which includes respecting patient autonomy and advocating for their rights when necessary. This means speaking up on behalf of vulnerable populations who may not be able to advocate for themselves due to language barriers or lack of knowledge about available resources. Ultimately, engaging in ethical decision-making and advocacy is an essential part of being a competent and compassionate nurse practitioner.
