Educating nurses on the principles of nursing ethics give them the appropriate tools to base ethical decisions upon.

Background The ability to recognize, understand and treat symptoms related to illnesses, along with crafting the right questions in order to promote optimal care is considered a fine art in the field of healthcare. However, sensitive and time-critical conditions can pose questions that could challenge the status quo in relation to healthcare policy and decision making. Challenging circumstances often call for drastic measures that make difficult to decide right vs wrong. An ethical dilemma defines this decision-making process. Healthcare providers, such as nurses, confront this type of situations often in an array of clinical settings.
Respecting autonomy means respecting the individuals capacity to make decisions consistent with the patient’s own personal desires or life plans. The British Medical Association (2007) states that these are decisions with which others may not agree with. If a patient is requesting or seeking support in carrying out assisted suicide it poses a challenge for the nurse to seek the underlying reasons for the request. Likewise, Carr and Mohr (2008) concurs with the British Medical Association (2007) and also expresses concern with regard to patients having powerful feelings of depression or isolation, pain or suffering or feel a sense of burden on their families. Better symptom management and palliative care, appropriate referrals to counsellors and hospices and increased knowledge about the right of a competent adult to refuse treatment even if the refusal will hasten death may provide satisfactory alternative to assisted suicide.
Abandonment and Nursing The career of nursing is more than just healing the sick. Nursing often causes nurses to face moral and ethical dilemmas. “Ethics refers to principles of right and wrong behaviors, beliefs, and values (Zerwekh & Garneau, 2015, p. 420).” When new graduate nurses begin their careers the first twelve months are a great time to gain a better understanding of personal beliefs and how they can affect patient care. Nursing is a highly respected profession and patients will seek advice from nurses. Therefore, nurses should learn how to react to situations that may not align completely with their own personal moral or ethical beliefs.
