NURS 8002 Ethics and the DNP-Prepared Nurse Discussion

You are likely already upholding ethics in nursing and healthcare delivery in your current nursing
practice experience. As mentioned in the introduction for this week, a patient-focused approach that
promotes the delivery of safe, quality, and cost-effective healthcare for promoting positive patient
outcomes represents a fundamental alignment to ethical principles for the delivery of healthcare. In
your journey toward becoming a DNP-prepared nurse, you will continue to uphold ethical principles in
your nursing practice and will likely continue to serve as an advocate for adhering to these principles in
all you do.

For this Discussion, reflect on the case studies/scenarios related to ethical challenges presented in this
week’s Learning Resources. Think about how these ethical challenges may mirror your own experiences
in nursing practice. Consider what other ethical challenges may arise in your own nursing practice or as
you continue your program of study.
To prepare:
 Review the case studies/scenarios related to ethical challenges presented in this week’s
Learning Resources.
 Reflect on ethical challenges related to the organization or at the point of care that you may
have encountered in your nursing practice.
 Consider what new ethical challenges you might face once you obtain your doctoral degree.
By Day 3 of Week 10
Post an explanation of at least two significant ethical issues relevant to the DNP-prepared nurse. Then
explain how these issues might compare to the types of issues you have encountered in your practice.
Be specific and provide examples.
By Day 5 of Week 10
Read a selection of your colleagues’ responses and respond to at least two of your colleagues on two
different days by expanding upon your colleague’s post or suggesting an alternative approach to the
ethical issue described by your colleague.

Week 11

Module 5: Ethics and Issues for Social Change Advocacy
Ethics and the application of ethical principles is of supreme importance in nursing practice and
healthcare delivery. So much of what nurses and healthcare professionals do daily stems directly from
an ethical point of reference or frame. Providing patient care and ensuring patient safety while
enhancing quality and diminishing costs are all well-intended and ethical practices that you likely already
engage in your nursing practice. A strong ethical awareness and adherence to ethical guidelines is just
one way you will positively impact your patients in your role.
What's Happening This Module?
Module 5: Ethics and Issues for Social Change Advocacy is a 2-week module—Weeks 10–11 of the
course—in which you examine the role of the DNP-prepared nurse in upholding and abiding by

professional standards for the delivery of ethical nursing practice. You will also reflect on how the role of
the DNP-prepared nurse is central to social change advocacy for the improvement of healthcare and
nursing quality, the positive impact on patient outcomes, and positive impacts on the community as a
whole. In Week 10, you will review resources that highlight potential ethical issues in healthcare and
nursing practice. You will engage with your colleagues in a Discussion that will focus on the significant
ethical issues you reviewed that are relevant to the DNP-prepared nurse. In your Blog Assignment for
Week 11, you will consider how you anticipate enacting a personal and professional commitment
toward social change advocacy as a DNP-prepared nurse.
What do I have to do?     When do I have to do it?
