Assignment Content

  1. This assignment reinforces the importance of ethical decision-making in nursing. You will apply an ethical decision making model from this week’s readings to an ethical issue.

    Review “An Integrated Ethical-Decision-Making Model for Nurses” from this week’s
    University Library Readings.

    Apply the ethical decision-making model in the article to access to care or an ethical issue of your choice.

    Note: If you have questions about your chosen topic, contact your faculty member to ensure it is appropriate.

    ORGANIZE AND FOLLOW the 5 steps provided in the PARK model, including the following:

    • State the ethical issue and its relevance for nursing practice.
    • Collect and analyze additional information:
    • What populations does this serve?
    • Who are the key stakeholders?
    • What information is needed to overcome the problem?
    • After looking at additional information, decide whether the initial problem was correctly stated.
    • Develop alternatives and compare them:
    • What alternative programs address the issues?
    • Justify the decision:
    • Explain why this is important, needed, or beneficial for vulnerable populations.
    • Find strategies to implement the plan:
    • What ethical arguments could you use to dissuade someone who disagrees with the program?
