REFLECTION

With this law, I have learned that nurses are constantly challenged to make ethical
decisions about life and death issues in providing care to their clients and patients. To be
relevant and ethical, decisions need to be considered in the broader context of personal,
societal, cultural values.

I was also enlightened that the nursing profession uses regulatory mechanisms, codes of
ethics and other means to ensure ethical behavior. To locate ethical issues within the context
of nursing, it is vital to understand the definition of nursing itself: “Nursing encompasses
autonomous and collaborative care of individuals of all ages, families, groups and
communities, sick or well and in all settings. Nursing includes the promotion of health,
prevention of illness, and the care of ill, disabled, and dying people. Advocacy, promotion of
a safe environment, research, participating in shaping health policy and in patient and health
systems management, and education are also key nursing roles”

we can see through the core competencies that nurses’ responsibility to promote health is
related to the basic right to health care enshrined in the constitutions of governments, Yet,
ethical questions often arise when promoting health. For example, providing contraceptive
information to a woman whose religious beliefs disapprove their use can test the nurse’s ability
to promote health.

In a world where people want answers that don’t require journeys of reflection or
lengthy processes, it is even more important that we learn to deliberately take time to reflect
and thus gain wisdom. When we learn to appreciate for ourselves the benefits that self-
reflection offers, we increasingly value those nursing elders and thinkers who have
demonstrated, by example, its importance. Florence Nightingale, even after she stopped
actively engaging in bedside nursing care, continued to share the wisdom that she gained from
reflective and thoughtful nursing practice. Though physically infirm, she wrote and vigorously
advocated for changes in health care delivery and nursing education.
