Sample Paper

NUR445 Week 6 Journal Club

Nursing and healthcare fields require individuals administering surveys to adhere to specific ethical codes and get approval or get legal permissions from various ethics committees and institutions. The American Nursing Association (ANA) (n.d.) commits to address the significant ethical and human rights concerns that nurses face while developing activities and programs to improve their competent and human rights sensitivity. In the cross-study on the link between moral discomfort, professional stress, and the desire to continue working as a nurse, Borhani et al. (2014) provide the evidence of having ethical consideration during research. However, this survey’s ANA ethical standards include assessment whereby the stakeholders such as RNs collect comprehensive data related to healthcare provider’s situation or health and diagnosis to determine issues such as professional stress. Also, it meets the standards such as outcome identification to identify expectations and evaluation to assess progress towards attainment outcomes.

Furthermore, nurse researchers should consider ethical considerations before giving out a survey. Some ethical considerations include respect for persons such as patients or participants, respect for the community, including their beliefs and culture, and justice which involves maintaining confidentiality or privacy. Using human subjects in research can raise ethical questions, and researchers should consider ethical considerations in hospital settings. A sound reporting system for professional stress, moral distress, and intent to stay as my tool helps promote provision of quality healthcare. The reporting system will help nurses and other healthcare professionals address the organizational problems that subject them to stress. Most importantly, nurses can advocate for themselves by reaching out to the ANA for more information, and they can create change by running for elected office. I vote as a member of NRC to approve because of a balance of functional constituency, including gender diversity.
