In Leadership to encounter ethical challenges is to some extent expected. However, taking a stance for righteousness and advocate for our patient is a nurse’s duty. According to Marquis and Huston (2017), ethics is a method of moral behavior that guides a person’s action concerning right and wrong in any setting. Even though may not be a clear definition of what is right, it is some are written, and some are common senses. Killing is wrong, it is written. When we see other people are treated wrongly, no one tells us to stop and intervene; but we do! because it is the right thing to do. Ethics!! This paper will be a discussion about the ethical, conceptual framework in nursing, present an ethical dilemma that this writer had encountered, the role of the moral agent, and finally, discuss personal leadership style. Ethical Conceptual Framework Our ethical decision-making is influenced by our beliefs. Our cultural norm shapes our ethical and moral standards. According to the American Nurses Association, (2010), nursing has its own ethical guideline. The universal biomedical ethics principles include autonomy, veracity, beneficence, nonmaleficence, confidentiality, justice, and fidelity (Marquis& Huston, 2017). According to Marquis and Huston (2017), there are four ethical frameworks: utilitarian, rights-based, duty based, and intuitionist (p. 86). Furthermore, Marquis and Huston tell us there is a difference between nursing manager ethics and clinical nursing ethics. The ethical frameworks assist the nurse or the nurse manager in solving the ethical dilemma. Moreover, nursing ethics requires critical analysis of our action. It helps us to respond what would we do in this condition and help us select between right and wrong.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
