Rights and Responsibility

You use your reasoning skills (rationality) to determine your duties as well as the universal rules that each person should follow
(autonomy).
Core Values: Autonomy and Rationality
You prioritize the value of autonomy over equality. Your primary concern is protecting individual rights. You believe this is the best way to assure that everyone in the community is treated fairly. You prioritize the value of rationality over sensibility. You believe universal rules exist that apply equally to everyone and that the best results are achieved through consistent application of the universal rules.
Classical Virtues: Temperance
You value individual balance and restraint in the desire for pleasure as you seek to satisfy your duties. You also know who you are, so you can act with integrity in the exercise of all the virtues.
Key Phrase: “I am responsible.”
Because you value autonomy and rationality, you tend to assume that your own definitions of what a responsible person should do apply to everyone. Determining What Is Ethical: Fulfilling duties
You define an ethical person as one who fulfills their duties and does the right thing as an autonomous, fully-responsible adult. For you, this is the fullest expression of fairness and justice.
Analytical Tool: Reason
Using your critical thinking skills is your preferred method for learning and problem-solving. You tend to think through a problem carefully and research options to find the one that will allow you to fulfill your duties. You focus on gathering and analyzing all the available data so you can make a fully informed decision.
Gift: Self-knowledge
Because you are concerned with figuring out your duties, when you are at your best you know yourself - you know both what you are doing and why. Because of this, when you say that you will…...

Ethic Statement

...Ethical Statement Most people do not realize that your ethical perspective is very important. These are your morals that can affect your daily life from friends, school, and your workplace. Each person will have their own personal ethics and what they believe in. Most of your ethical perspectives come from the way you are raised and how you grow up. When I did my personal ethical lens I learned that my personal preferred lens is equality and sensibility. I want to make sure that everyone gets treated with fairness and justice in everything that they do. I always was taught to give everyone a fair shot and not to judge people so quickly. I was always taught not to react fast and always think things through. I have learned about my blind spots doing my ethical lens that I did not know before. It says my blind spots are working overconfidence in the process or unrealistic role expectations. I have learned I develop unrealistic role expectations forgetting the individuals can fail at things regardless of their role and that I trust too much in the process. I think having good ethics in personal, professional, and school is a very good thing to have. I believe every situation is unique and I do not believe in judging anyone until you know their story and should be treated equal. My strengths in having good ethics and knowing my morals are to give me a chance of knowing right from wrong. It gives me a chance to be consistent and flexible in my personal, work,......

...Personal Ethical Statement GEN/200 April 20 2013 Personal Ethical Statement As stated on my ethical lens, I use my reasoning skills (rationality) to determine my duties as well as the universal rules that each person should follow (autonomy). I prioritize the value of autonomy over equality. My primary concern is protecting individual rights. I believe this is the best way to ensure that everyone is treated fairly. I value individual balance and restraint in the desire for pleasure as I seek to satisfy my duties. I know who I am, so it allows me to act with integrity in the exercise of all virtues. My three top strengths are strategizing, Innovating and Researching. I am proud of these strengths. As a professional My weakest traits I believe are communicating and speaking to groups. I tend to be an introvert and my shyness causes me to get nervous. I lack confidence to speak strongly in a group environment. These traits, my strengths and weaknesses, suggest that I’d be successful in a Science based or health based career. Which is funny because I am in pursuit of my degree as a registered nurse. It also shows I could work well in careers where success comes from applying practical skills and where thinking is used mostly to solve practical problems. And that I am most likely to be attracted to very practical jobs and careers. The development of my personal ethics is continuous processes, which occurs as I mature and face different situations in my life.......

Professional Ethics

...Professional Ethics The Good Will: Kant claims that the only thing good in itself is the “Good Will.” Therefore, doing something just because you think it is good doesn’t make the act necessarily good. For example, your significant other asks you to go to the Dave Chappelle show with them. You either go because you know it will make them happy, or you go because you are a huge Dave Chappelle fan or you reluctantly go to the show even though you have tons of homework to do. According to Kant doing an act of good will means doing it strictly for the sake of duty. This means you are simply doing it because it is your job to do so. So in the situation with the Dave Chappelle show, if I were to go reluctantly to the show even though I have homework to do, I would be going out of good will. The other two reasons for going wouldn’t be considered good will because I would be getting some sort of pleasure or reward out of attending the show. You should feel no emotions other than “you must do this because it’s your duty.” The Function of Reason: Kant’s moral philosophy is largely grounded on practical reasoning. Kant believes that “Human reason is by its nature architectonic.” Meaning that reason allows us to identify grounds behind every truth. Generality helps explain the way things are by grouping things together in higher and higher levels from particular and contingent to the global and universal. Kant argues that the entire empirical world must be conceived of by......

Professional Ethics

...Professional EThics Professional Ethics Legal and ethical issues are frequently encountered in the health care setting and present unique challenges to health care professionals. Practicing nurses need to be knowledgeable with these concepts to ensure patient’s rights. In this paper, the author will describe the relationships between legal and ethical issues. In addition, the author will identify personal values and professional ethics and examine ethical theories and principles. Examples of applications of legal and ethical issues to current practice will also be provided. Relationships Between Legal and Ethical Issues “Ethics is the branch of philosophy concerned with evaluating human action” (Guido, 2010, p. 3). It is based on the principles of right and wrong and provides structure to behaviors and actions. Ethics are closely intertwined with morals and values. Morals are “personal principles that are acquired from life experiences, family and peer relationships, religion, culture, and the law” (Guido, 2010, p. 3). Values are “personal beliefs about the truths and worth of thoughts, objects, or behavior” (Guido, 2010, p. 3). Therefore, ethics are subject to an individual’s personal interpretation. In contrast, laws are rules and regulations established by some authority and enforced by judicial decision (Dictionary.com, 2011). The legal system governs actions and behaviors without regard to personal values, beliefs, and views. Laws are constantly evolving......

...Professional Ethics Paper Carolyn Smith HCS/478 August 15, 2011 Ann-Marie Peckham Professional Ethics Paper The purpose of this paper is to discuss the relationship among professional values, ethics, and legal issues. A person’s personal values and ethics can influence their professional values and ethics in the workplace. Finding the right balance between personal and professional views in the workplace will help foster a successful career. This paper will cover relationships between legal and ethical issues as well as personal values and professional ethics. Relationships between Legal and Ethical Issues According to Wacker-Guido & Watson (2010), there are eight ethical principles that nurses encounter when making decisions in clinical settings, autonomy, beneficence, no maleficence, veracity, justice, paternalism, fidelity, and respect or others. In other terms nurses have personal freedom, the right of self-determination, a duty to perform good actions, duty to prevent any harm for occurring to their patients, the obligation to tell the truth, treat all patients equally and fairly, allow others to make decisions for individual patients, keep promises and commitments they make, and to treat everyone with respect. Ethical values are influenced by personal feelings, and are interpreted differently depending on the beliefs of the individual.

Ethics for Professionals

...*This task contains portions of material that was originally submitted during the 1303B Session in Composition and Critical Thinking with William Cramer and during the DB Phase 2 of 1401A session in Ethics for Professionals with Siamak Pourayan. PHIL301-1401A-04: Ethics for Professionals   Individual Project 2 LaShonda M. Canada January 25, 2014 Abstract The Bible states in Proverbs 14:12, “There is a way that seems right to a man, but in the end it leads to death.” (NIV) The Bible is the instruction manual for human life to all Christian believers. It urges us to develop virtues such as responsibility, honesty, loyalty, love, and faithfulness. (Berkley, 1995) What happens when we deviate from these virtues? Does it mean we are the total opposite of what each virtue represents? This scripture depicts what happens when man creates their own laws and/or statues and behaves in such a way that benefits his needs. In the remainder of this paper, I will provide the various definitions of corruption and why it’s tolerated in certain environments. I will define ethical relativism and how it relates to corrupt behavior. Also, I will examine the most common, in my opinion, corrupt behavior which is theft. Corruption has various definitions, but the similarities of the definition have the same ending results, and that is, it involves some form of illegal activity. Merriam-Webster Dictionary Online defines corruption as: the impairment of integrity,......

My Personal Ethics Statement

...My Personal Ethics Statement Dawn Belt University of Phoenix Health Law and Ethics HCS 478 Shavonnie Carthens July 03, 2015 My Personal Ethics Statement Ethics is defined by "the branch of philosophy concerned with evaluating human action", (Wacker Guido, 2010, Chapter 1). I have spent a large amount of time reflecting on ethics as what ethics means to me, as well as, which values are the most important to me and how I live by them. I find ethics to mean who one feels about doing the right thing and accountability. Values are our characteristics that help us to be ethical. During my journey through the Ethical Lens Inventory, I had to ponder over the many stages and encounters throughout my life. I am amazed at how, so many small, and what I thought to be insignificant encounters, I had in my life has made a big impact on my values. The list of all the encounters is too long to provide here in my personal ethics statement. Therefore, this paper will focus on the encounters that have made the most impact on the most important values to me. As I reflect on my years of growing up, I remember my parents trying to teach right from wrong. My father seemed to teach right from wrong by always focusing on my wrongs as I cannot remember learning right from wrong with something that I did or did not do for the good. I was in fourth grade when I collected every student's pencils and kept them at my desk. Taking the pencils were considered stealing, and when my parents......

Professional Ethics

... Reference 16 1.0 Introduction The field of ethics or moral philosophy that involves systematizing, defending, and recommending concepts of right and wrong behavior. Philosophers today usually divide ethical theories into three general subject areas; metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics (Fieser, 2013). Metaethics investigates where our ethical principles come from, and what they mean. Are they merely social inventions? Do they involve more than expressions of our individual emotions? Metaethical answers to these questions focus on the issues of universal truths, the will of God, the role of reason in ethical judgments, and the meaning of ethical terms themselves. Normative ethics takes on a more practical task, which is to arrive at moral standards that regulate right and wrong conduct. This may involve articulating the good habits that we should acquire, the duties that we should follow, or the consequences of our behavior on others. Finally, involving in examining specific controversial issues, such as abortion, infanticide, animal rights, environmental concerns, homosexuality, capital punishment, or nuclear war. By using the conceptual tools of metaethics and normative ethics, discussions in applied ethics try to resolve these controversial issues. The lines of distinction between metaethics, normative ethics, and applied ethics are often unclear. For example, the issue of abortion is an applied ethical topic since......

... Sections 1-4 are to be completed by the student; Sections 5 / 6 are to be completed by the tutor / supervisor. Section 1 Briefly outline your research questions or aims I observed in my bi-lingual kindergarten classroom that students are not aware of the significance of literacy skills. Students do not show an understanding of a constructed writing lesson and cannot relate what is being learned to everyday life. Therefore I believe that young children’s understanding of literacy as meaningful and purposeful, and not merely an abstract skill to be learned, is a critically important part of learning to communicate, read and write. For my case study I have decided to look at the following questions and observe these through different role play and teacher lead activities in the classroom. What types of scaffolding techniques enhances emergent literacy skills in a bi lingual environment? How can a positive attitude towards writing be encouraged? Section 2 Briefly outline your proposed methods and sites of data generation and your proposed methods of sampling During this case study project participants will be expected to answer a series of questions about their feelings and understanding of literacy. Participants will also be expected to take part in role play activities and literacy exercises during the course of the study. During the study, participants will also be asked to complete and partake in specific writing exercises. At the end of the study participants will...

...rated Nursing to be the most ethical profession and expecting nursing professionals to illustrate the highest ethical standards from any industry. Nurses are held accountable for the patient and their family’s welfare. The ANA provides the Nursing profession guidelines to treat every patient with dignity, respect, and compassion also free from any personal judgment of race, social or economic status, personal disparities, or disregard to health status. The American Nurses’ Association illustrates how to carry out your professional practice with their primary focus on the patient and their family. As nursing we must respect professional boundaries, to include the privacy and confidentiality of the patient and family. Nurses must maintain a respect for human dignity, and hold in the patient as the primary focus. (ANA, 2015). The nurse’s duties include the responsibility to follow guidelines and regulations, acting only on duties within the scope of the professional practice. Also, any nurse who maintains licensure in any state must also adhere to the regulations and their respective boards. The ANA creates community for an ethical culture so that nurses can deal with the daily ethical decision-making, so knowing how the organizational culture will affect those decisions is important. Nurses have certain standards to go by and if they are not making the right choices he or she are violating their professional ethical culture. It was very surprising to me that the ANA did......

...Journal of Accounting, Ethics & Public Policy   Volume 3, Number 1 (Winter 2003), pp. 1‐26 Ayn Rand and Contemporary Business Ethics    Stephen R. C. Hicks Introduction: business and the free society Advocates of the free society think of business as an integral part of the dynamic, progressive society they advocate. In the West, the rise of a culture hospitable to business has unleashed incalculable productive energies. Business professionals have taken the products of science and revolutionized the fields of agriculture, transportation, and medicine. Business professionals have taken the products of art and dramatically increased our access to them. We have more food, we are more mobile, we have more health care, we have more access to works of fiction, theater, and music than anyone could reasonably have predicted a few centuries ago. The result of business in the West, and more recently in parts of the East, has been an enormous rise in the standard of human living. We have gone, in the space of a few centuries, from a time in which perhaps 10% of the population lived comfortably while 90% lived near subsistence to a time in which 90% live better than comfortably and 10% live near subsistence. And we haven’t given up on the remaining 10%.   Intellectuals who study the free society have, in the fields of economics and politics, a good understanding of what makes this possible: individualism. In economics there exists a well worked out understanding......
