Dictionary.com defines ethics as “that branch of philosophy dealing with values relating to human conduct, with respect to the rightness and wrongness of certain actions and to the goodness and badness of the motives and ends of such actions.” This definition directed me to consider my ethical behavior....   [tags: Teleology, Deontology, Intuitionism, Virtue Theory]

Ethical Dilemma - The two principles that are in focus are beneficence and nonmaleficence.

In addition, both of these ethical principles beneficence and nonmaleficence are strengthened by state nursing practice acts, which mandate that nurses are legally obligated to safeguard patients and the profession (Bjarnason & LaSala, 201...   [tags: Health Care, Nurses] 2245 words
