Week 6 Reflective Journal

This week we discussed the role of a nurse leader in an ethical situation. I especially enjoyed the ethical discussion about the patient on dialysis. I thought that it was a great case study and that it let the group a possible situation. I was glad that I was able to find similar clinical situations and read about how this problem was handled. If an ethical dilemma every did arise I’m glad that I’m now able to research about it and make clinical decisions based off of that information. We also watched My Sister’s Keeper. This movie did a great job of portraying another possible unethical situation. Reflecting on this movie helped me understand the importance of dealing with unethical situations before they get out of control. This week helped me know what resources are available to me and the basic actions to take in the event of an unethical situation.
