Chapter 4: Ethical Foundations of Professional Nursing

Question 1

What are the processes for acquiring values?

  1. Prescribed by the dominant religion.
  2. Formal education and study.
  3. Discussions with clergy.
  4. Choosing, prizing, and acting.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale: The valuing process includes cognitive, affective, and behavioral components, referred to as choosing, prizing, and acting. While people may be exposed to a value system through religion, by formal education and study, and through discussions with clergy, these avenues only introduce a value. The person must then choose to adopt the value as his or her own.

Question 2

Which statement about values is correct?

  1. Most everyone adopts the same values.
  2. Once adopted, values are not changed.
  3. Values clarification is associated with personal growth.
  4. People must have values identified for them.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: Values clarification promotes personal growth by fostering awareness, empathy, and insight. A principle of values clarification is that no one set of values is right for everyone. When people are able to identify their values, they can retain or change them based on freely chosen values.

Question 3

The nurse has a strong personal value system and is concerned that these values may conflict with the values of a newly assigned nursing unit. What should the nurse do? (Select all that apply.)

  1. Identify personal values.
  2. Be watchful for situations in which there may be a values conflict.
  3. Hold personal values in check if it is still possible to provide effective care.
  4. Refuse to be transferred to this unit.
  5. Discuss the situation with the nursing supervisor.

Correct Answer: 1, 2, 3, 5

Rationale: In order to identify potential values conflicts, the nurse must first be aware of his or her personal value system. The nurse should be watchful for situations in which a values conflict may occur so that unrecognized conflict will not interfere with care. If possible, the nurse should hold personal values in check as long as effectiveness and quality of care are not compromised. If a values conflict occurs, the nurse should discuss the situation with the nursing supervisor. If this nurse has already accepted this assignment, refusal to provide care may constitute abandonment, which is not ethical and could result in action against the nurses license to practice.

Question 4

The client has made a difficult decision to refuse treatment for a potentially curable malignancy. The nurse asks the client, How are you going to tell your spouse about this decision? What is the nurse attempting to assess?

  1. Whether the client has considered all of the treatment options available.
  2. Whether the client was able to choose freely among treatment options.
  3. Whether the client is prepared to act on the decision.
  4. Whether the client feels good about the decision made.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: This question helps to determine whether the client is prepared to act on the decision made. A question to assess whether the client has considered all of the treatment options available would be something like, What are the benefits and risks of your decision? A question to assess whether the client was able to choose freely among treatment options would be something like, Did you have any say or choice in this decision? A question to assess whether the client feels good about the decision made would be something like, How do you feel about your decision?

Question 5

The nurse educator asks the nursing student about the difference in standards between codes of ethics and legal standards. Which response by the student indicates the greatest level of understanding?

  1. Standards in codes of ethics and legal standards are generally the same.
  2. Codes of ethics are much higher standards than legal standards.
  3. Legal standards are much higher than codes of ethics standards.
  4. Codes of ethics are usually higher, and can be no lower, than legal standards.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale: Codes of ethics have standards that are generally higher than those of legal standards, and they can never be less that the legal standards of the profession. The standards are not the same, but are generally similar, so it is neither correct to state that codes of ethics are much higher than legal standards nor the reverse.

Question 6

How is the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretative Statements most useful for nurses?

  1. It gives direction for actions as related to specific cases of ethical dilemma.
  2. It gives suggestions for use in cases of general-duty ethical dilemma.
  3. It is best used to make suggestions to solve problems in critical situations.
  4. It offers general guidelines for the ethical delivery of nursing care.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale: Codes of ethics give general guidelines for how the profession believes ethical care should be delivered. There are no specific guidelines for cases in general duty or in critical situations and no guidelines for specific cases.

Question 7

What is the framework for nurses to use for decision making in an ethical dilemma?

  1. The ANA social policy statement
  2. The Bible
  3. The ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses
  4. The nurse practice act

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: The ANA Code of Ethics for Nurses provides the framework for nurses to use for decision making in an ethical dilemma. The other options may provide some help in making decisions, but the Code is the standard for ethical issues.

Question 8

Which scenario represents a nurse working at Kohlbergs preconventional stage of moral development?

  1. The nurse agrees to work overtime today if he or she can have a weekend shift off.
  2. The nurse agrees to work overtime today to gain the approval of the new nursing supervisor.
  3. The nurse agrees to work overtime today because the hospital administration has released a rule stating that each nurse must work one overtime shift per month.
  4. The nurse agrees to work overtime today because the other nurse who was asked to work the overtime shift needs to attend his or her childs school play.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale: At the preconventional level, the person takes action to satisfy personal needs. At the conventional level, the person takes action to please another and to gain approval as in the option regarding the new nursing supervisor. When the nurse takes an action to follow a rule as in the option regarding the rule stating that each nurse must work one overtime shift per month, he or she is also working at the conventional level. The postconventional level is represented by the remaining option in which the nurse respects the other nurses need and acts to protect the interests of another.

Question 9

According to Gilligan, which statement is true?

  1. Men usually follow the moral development path of nonviolence.
  2. Women usually follow the moral development path of equality.
  3. Men usually follow the moral development path of fairness.
  4. Women usually follow the moral development path of justice.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: According to Gilligan, for women moral maturity is less a matter of abstract, impersonal justice or equality and more an ethic of caring relationships. Men generally follow the path of justice or fairness, based upon the idea that everyone should receive the same treatment. Women typically follow the path of caring, which is based upon the premise of nonviolence: that no one should be harmed or abandoned.

Question 10

What knowledge or skill must the nurse possess to make the best use of the teleologic theory of ethics in decision-making?

  1. Ability to predict the outcome of decisions.
  2. What the rules are concerning the decision to be made.
  3. Ability to see how good character traits impact the decision.
  4. What the central caring goal of the decision is.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale: In teleology, the ends justify the means, and applying this requires that the person be able to predict the outcomes of actions when making decisions. Concern for rules reflects the deontologic focus. Good character traits are associated with virtue ethics. Caring is a separate basis of nursing ethics.

Question 11

The nurse who is faced with an ethical dilemma refers to the Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretative Statements for guidance. What help can the nurse expect from this document?

  1. Specific guidelines for common ethical issues.
  2. Some ideas of the ethics of nursing that are negotiable depending upon circumstance.
  3. The basis for ethical analyzing and decision making for nurses practicing in the United States.
  4. A lengthy description of the need for ethical behavior and decision making in nursing

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: The Code of Ethics for Nurses with Interpretative Statements is a statement of the ethical obligations and duties of every individual who enters the nursing profession in the United States. It is succinct, not lengthy, and is nonnegotiable. There are no specific guidelines for individual cases; instead it is an expression of nursings own understanding of ethics and its commitment to society.

Question 12

The nurse has a strong personal belief that life begins at conception. Can this nurse legally refuse to assist with an abortion?

  1. Yes, but only if there is no health danger to the mother if the abortion is not performed.
  2. Yes; most states have conscience clauses or provisions to protect the nurse in this situation.
  3. No; if the nurse has willingly taken a job where assisting with an abortion is a possibility, he or she cannot refuse to assist.
  4. No; because abortions are considered medical procedures, the nurse is ethically required to assist.

Correct Answer: 2

Rationale: Assisting with an abortion is an ethical decision that each nurse must make. Most states have provisions known as conscience clauses that permit individual physicians and nurses, as well as institutions, to refuse to assist with an abortion if doing so violates their religious or moral principles. Nurses are not required to violate their religious or moral principles and may choose to leave a position in a facility that provides abortions. The health danger to the mother is not a factor in the nurses decision.

Question 13

The nurse has been caring for a ventilator-dependent patient for several days. The family has made the decision to withdraw ventilatory support. How should the nurse interpret this decision?

  1. As active euthanasia
  2. As illegal euthanasia
  3. As passive euthanasia
  4. As alleviation euthanasia

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: There are two types of euthanasia discussed in the textbook: active and passive. Withdrawal of life-sustaining technology is considered passive euthanasia. Active euthanasia is purposefully doing something that will result in the clients death, such as knowingly and purposefully administering a medication overdose. Alleviation and illegal are not forms of euthanasia discussed in the textbook.

What ethical issues arise from organ donation and transplantation? (Select all that apply.)

  1. Allocation of organs.
  2. Selling of organs.
  3. Advanced consent for donation.
  4. Involvement of children as donors.
  5. Cloning for the manufacture of organs.

Correct Answer: 1, 2, 4, 5

Rationale: The ethical issues that arise from organ donation and transplantation include allocation of organs, selling of organs, involvement of children as donors, and cloning for the manufacture of organs. Advanced consent for donation is a way to assure that the wishes of the donor are followed, which helps to avoid an ethical situation.

  3. Whether physician or nurse practitioners provide the most cost-effective care.
  4. Whether medication therapy is superior to diet therapy in the control of chronic illness.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale: All of these options are ethical dilemmas faced by healthcare providers, but the major argument is whether health care is a right or a privilege. The other options reflect this basic argument.

  2. The medical students learn how difficult nursing school is.
  3. It helps bring about better team communication in practice.
  4. Both groups learn that medicine is a business, not just a service.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: Interdisciplinary education courses including both nursing students and medical students would have all of these options as benefits. The major benefit is that they bring about better team communication in practice.

Question 17

Why are nurses valuable members of ethics committees?

  1. They have more time to work on committees than many healthcare providers.
  2. Their wages are lower than many disciplines so it is more cost effective.
  3. They are direct and to the point and make decisions quickly.
  4. They frequently have more contact with clients and families than other disciplines.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale: Nurses are valuable because they have more direct contact with clients and families than any other discipline. They do not have any more time than others to work on committees. Nursing salaries are higher than many disciplines. Although nurses can make quick decisions, this is not a quality that is beneficial in an ethics committee.

  1. The client must give consent.
  2. The group must be interdisciplinary.
  3. These rounds must be conducted privately.
  4. The cases must be hypothetical.

Correct Answer: 1

Rationale: Ethics rounds use hypothetical or real cases and incorporate the traditional rounding approach to education whereby discussions may be held at the clients bedside. The client must give consent. These ethics rounds may or may not be interdisciplinary.

Question 23

What is the focus of client advocacy?

  2. The nurse should influence the client to make the right decision.
  3. The focus is respect for the clients decisions and enhancement of autonomy.
  4. Emphasis is on correcting the clients reported weaknesses.

Correct Answer: 3

Rationale: Client advocacy is focused on respect of the clients decision-making and enhancement of the clients autonomy. The nurse should assist the client with decision-making, but not influence the decision. The nurse is not responsible for the clients health; that is the clients responsibility. The nurse is not responsible for correcting the clients weaknesses.

Question 24

The nurse working at the bedside traditionally participates in which advocacy role? (Select all that apply.)

  1. Legal
  2. Self
  3. Collective
  4. Class
  5. Citizen

Correct Answer: 2, 5

Rationale: The bedside nurse is most likely to participate in self-advocacy and citizen advocacy roles. Self-advocacy refers to supporting the nurses needs at work and the client and family needs in health care. Citizen advocacy is concerned primarily with empowering people through an individual relationship, so bedside nurses also work in this role. Legal advocacy is more limited to attorneys or other court-appointed agents. Collective or class advocacy refers to relatively large organizations that pursue the interests of a category of people.

Question 25

Which attribute is necessary for the nurse who wishes to be a client advocate?

  1. Restricting work to those areas in which the nurse has expertise and experience.
  2. Referring any political action needs to a political action committee.
  3. Avoiding conflicts with physicians and healthcare agency administrators.
  4. Being assertive in representing the needs of the client and family.

Correct Answer: 4

Rationale: The client advocate nurse must be assertive in representing the needs of the client and family. The nurse must be willing to become politically active and to work in areas and with agencies that are unfamiliar. The nurse must also be aware that conflicts with physicians, agency administrators, and others in health care may arise in the advocacy role and must accept this conflict rather than trying to avoid it.

  1. Choose freely
  2. List alternatives
  3. Act on the choice
  4. Affirm the choice
  5. Act with a pattern
