The topic that I find most interesting is on hospital ethics and ethics committees. As a behavioral health nurse, there are numerous ethical situations that arise and I believe that utilizing an ethics committee would be helpful in manycircumstances. These committiees are established to “assure that ethicists are ableto serve the common good by helping for-profit companies become more ethically responsible—a goal to which ethicists must commit themselves if they are to befaithful to their profession.” (McCartney, 2009, p. 1)

My view on the analysis of disease and healing in the readings is that spirituality plays an important role in the management of diseases and healing. One’s faith and outlook can provide methods for coping and acceptance. It can also lift someone from a sense of despair and help them to make positive changes in their health practices. For nurses, respecting and fostering their patients spirituality is essential for providing holistic care. I was disappointed to read in our readings that “… the common people in her day were becoming atheists and thereby losing their basis for ethical behavior.” (Shelly & Miller, 2006, p. 14) While Christianity can provide a morale framework for ethics, it does not have a monopoly on goodness. I respect everyone’s religion, or absence of religion, in my nursing practice, and seek to provide compassionate care and respect based on their personal beliefs and values. I also work with nurses from other cultures, religions, and no religious faith, and do not believe they give substandard care or practice with less compassion that Christian nurses. I do agree with the reading that some nurses are entering the profession for economic reasons as their main motive. To me, this is the main root of the problem with nurses who do not uphold the high standards within our practice.

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
