This presentation will re-acquaint learners with fundamental concepts and principles in ethics as they apply to professional nursing practice. Descriptive ethics, how things are, will be contrasted with normative ethics, how things ought to be, in the context of a nurses professional obligations, defined in the ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses. The presentation will focus on the duties a nurse owes to him/herself and to establishing, maintaining and improving the work environment, particularly in situations where patient safety may be at risk. Learners will be challenged to participate in an interactive exercise that demonstrates the impact of remaining silent rather than entering into what is described in the Silence Kills study as seven crucial conversations in health care. Strategies for managing stress in high-stakes situations will be identified as learners practice the skill of speaking up in ethically challenging situations. Participants will learn what it means to exercise moral agency and moral courage.
