Strategies for Maintaining Integrity and Ethics of Professional Work Delivering high-quality care to patients requires nurses to exhibit professional work ethic in their practice. Lachman's (2012) interpretation of the four phases of caring will be a strategy to incorporate integrity and ethics into the nursing practice. Lachman states that nurses show caring by recognizing the patient's needs, seeing their responsibility in patient's needs, responding to the patient's needs, and assessing the effectiveness of the intervention with the patient (2012). Nurses can apply ethics to their practice by providing honesty, administering safe care, and ethically adhering to policies, which will warrant the trust of their patients and improve patient outcome. Conclusion Ever present in the nursing field is the relationship between academic integrity and writing, as well as the relationship between scholarly ethics and professional practice. Nurses that exude integrity and ethics in their profession and academics will be successful in their career. A nurse that holds integrity in their academic work has made a firm foundation that will strengthen and reflect how they practice with integrity professionally.

Week 4 | Part 4: Research Analysis Introduction Locating and using research data is vital to the academic and professional development of a scholar-practitioner. It is a personal goal of mine to be competent in the area of researching and eventually publishing written work. This section's purpose is to identify a peer-reviewed article of interest and explain the relevancy of the literature to professional practice. This segment will also include an analysis of the research article and if one should recommend it as referential information in professional practice.
