In the career for which you are preparing, where will you look for ethical guidance?
Employer: contractual obligations, employee handbook, corporate culture.
Colleagues: fellow workers, deserving respect, productive relationships.
Clients: honest treatment, service with dignity, contractual obligations.
Profession: fellow practitioners, counterbalance to employer, code of conduct.
Personal: individual commitments, personal responsibility, integrity.
SHOW LESSAll of these overlapping concerns may create conflicted situations. Professional association codes of ethics commonly deal with a number of concerns:
Expertise: qualifications for practitioners, continuing education.
Research: informed consent, plagiarism, shared publication credit.
Privacy: record keeping, protecting confidentiality, public statements.
Relationships: harassment, conflicts of interest, workplace behavior.
No matter how extensively the professional code is spelled out, it cannot cover everything, and it often overemphasizes enforcement. It is more helpful to take a positive approach, thinking aspirationally about how best to handle challenging situations.
Questions to Consider
To deepen your understanding, you are encouraged to consider the questions below and discuss them with a fellow learner, a work associate, an interested friend, or a member of the business community.SHOW LESS
What concrete situations in your workplace might give rise to ethical dilemmas?
Does the professional code of conduct provide any relevant guidance for these cases?
Where else might you turn for reliable advice on handling each of these situations?
How can workplace colleagues productively resolve disagreements about such issues?
When might your own personal ethical convictions conflict with the advice of others?
Please remember that these are practical questions. The point is not to deal abstractly with philosophical issues, but rather to develop useful skills everyone can apply every day.

Imagine management at your future workplace tasks you with making a formal presentation to your team discussing a workplace ethical dilemma they might face. You consider an appropriate professional code of conduct, but only to the extent that it might offer useful guidance in this situation. The central task is to help everyone work together productively in resolving tricky issues.For this assessment, fulfill the management task and create an audiovisual presentation that applies a professional code of ethics to common workplace situations. Submit your work as a narrated visual presentation in the courseroom submission box. You may develop a series of annotated PowerPoint slides, for example, using Kaltura to record the audio portion of your work. If you are more familiar with other presentation software, you may use that, so long as your submission satisfies all of the required elements of the assessment.
Include the following in your narrated visual presentation:
Apply a professional code of ethics to this workplace situation.
Assess the advantages and disadvantages of the selected professional code of ethics.
Explain methods for resolving ethical disagreements productively.
Describe areas of one’s personal disagreement with professional standards.
Note: Include in your presentation slides or annotations a full APA-style citation of any quotation or paraphrase from the professional code or other sources you choose to employ.Your instructor may provide video feedback on your work, in addition to completing the official scoring guide for the assignment.Submit this assessment to your ePortfolio.
Communication: Create an audiovisual presentation that applies a professional code of ethics to common workplace situations.
Media presentation: Create a minimum of 6 slides, 12 minutes total in length, with notes or a transcript to ensure accessibility to everyone. Upload the presentation.
Resources: There is no minimum number of resources required; however, use your judgment to ensure your topic is thoroughly researched.
APA guidelines: Ensure resources and citations are formatted according to current APA style and format. When appropriate, use APA-formatted headings.
Font and font size: Use a font of appropriate size and weight for presentation, generally 24-28 points for headings and no smaller than 18 points for bullet-point text
You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.
Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.
Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.
The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.

The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) is the highest level of nursing practice for nurse leaders. The DNP improves patient outcomes and puts research findings into practice. They specialize in providing evidence-based practice information. They also provide quality improvement, system leadership, and other critical nursing services. The DNP is intended for nurses seeking a terminal degree in nursing practice and serves as an alternative to doctoral programs focused on research. DNP-prepared nurses are well-prepared to fully implement the science developed by PhD, DNS, and other research-focused nursing doctorates. 2022) (DNP facesheet).
The desire to apply theory and develop formal research programs, to become nursing faculty, to combine clinical practice and formal research, and to advance through professional leadership in hospitals and health systems organizations. The Phd focuses on research and philosophy, and graduates are more likely to be considered nurse scientists who conduct research and use evidence-based practice.
If I had to choose between the two, I would definitely go for the DNP rather than the PhD. Both appear to be very interesting and to have different areas of knowledge, but DNP would be my choice without a doubt.
In their 2010 report, The Future of Nursing: Leading Change, Advancing Health, the Institute of Medicine (IOM) recommended that nurses’ education be increased, with a focus on increasing the number of nurses with baccalaureate degrees and doubling the number of nurses with doctoral degrees (Melnyk, 2013). In the United States, there is still some confusion about the roles of PhD and DNP. Endpoints for these programs are distinct. The PhD degree prepares researchers and scholars to generate external evidence to advance science and theory while also guiding practice. The DNP degree, on the other hand, prepares expert clinicians to prepare internal evidence and translate evidence generated through rigorous research into practice in order to improve health care quality, patient outcomes, and organizational and health policy (Melnyk, 2013). The DNP focuses on providing leadership for evidence-based practice in the real world (EBP). DNP graduates will seek roles as educators, but the emphasis should be on advanced practice specialization rather than the teaching process.
If given the opportunity to advance his nursing career, this writer will pursue a DNP. There is far too much time and schooling required to complete a PhD degree at his age. Given my age, this writer may not be able to enjoy and share the learned experience for long. The writer is also still completing his BSN deree and may require a break. The writer’s ambition is to work as a consultant. He enjoys working with EBPs and developing policies to aid in risk management assessment and prevention.
