This means that I should not take bribes or be coerced into doing illegal or harmful procedures on patients such as abortion. My professional ethics as outlined in the Nursing Practices Act should be visible in my work. Additionally, I should be firm on my personal principles such as honesty.

Conflict Resolution Conflicts may arise between my patient and me, or even with my colleagues. These may arise due to working under pressure, overstepping each other's duties at the workplace, and misunderstanding on the diagnosis of a patient among others. As a nursing practitioner, I am required to be a problem solver. To resolve conflicts, I should be open to listening to my patient's or partner's point of view from which we can find a middle ground. If not, I may involve other stakeholders within the profession to help resolve the issue peacefully. Strategies I will apply I believe that to acquire great leadership skills in the nursing profession, I should follow the regulations stipulated in the Nurse Practice Act. Here, my roles are defined clearly as well as my scope of practice. Therefore, I cannot overstep my duty framework which could get me into trouble with the state law. This will help me make decisions wisely, maintain integrity and peaceful environment at my workplace. Moreover, I intend to keep myself updated about changes in the profession. This could include policies for practitioners or other regulations. For example, certain procedures could be banned and conducting them could lead to jail terms. Through this, I will be able to make informed decisions in my career and maintain a good relationship with patients and my colleagues.

Thus, tending to a patient is no ordinary job and should be done cautiously.
