Applying an Ethical Decision-Making Model

Review “An Integrated Ethical-Decision-Making Model for Nurses” from this week’s University Library Readings.


Apply the ethical decision-making model in the article to access to care or an ethical issue of your choice.


Note: If you have questions about your chosen topic, contact your faculty member to ensure it is appropriate.


Follow the steps provided in the model, including the following:

  • State the ethical issue and its relevance for nursing practice.
  • Collect and analyze additional information:
  • What populations does this serve?
  • Who are the key stakeholders?
  • What information is needed to overcome the problem?
  • After looking at additional information, decide whether the initial problem was correctly stated.
  • Develop alternatives and compare them:
  • What alternative programs address the issues?
  • Justify the decision:
  • Explain why this is important, needed, or beneficial for vulnerable populations.
  • Find strategies to implement the plan:
  • What ethical arguments could you use to dissuade someone who disagrees with the program?
